Tottenham Striker Troy Parrott to Miss Premier League Restart

Due to Return in Late June

A club statement has confirmed that the teenager is likely to return at the end of next month.

Parrott had reported the issue to the clubs medical staff. Following tests, it was found that he had early signs of appendicitis. As a result, he subsequently under went surgery to remove his appendix.

His period on the sidelines means that he will miss the scheduled return of the Premier League, which is due to begin on the June 17 after a long hiatus.

Quick Turnaround in Games Could See the Irishman Earn Game Time

In order for the season to be completed as soon as possible, there is expected to be a quick turnaround in games.

As a result, alongside the short time for players to regain their fitness, managers may look to rotate their squads to prevent injuries. This could mean that the young Irishman could see more game time as the season comes to a close.

The 18-year-old is highly rated at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but continues to see his development protected. He has made just two Premier League appearances so far in his career, totalling seven minutes.

While Jose Mourinho has not thrown him into the deep end just yet, that could change once the Premier League returns. Harry Kane has returned to training alongside his team-mates, but his injury record may mean that he is managed carefully by his manager. This could benefit Parrott, who is the only other out-and-out striker in the first-team.

Return to Training in Good Shape

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that none of his squad have returned to training with injuries. Before the Coronavirus outbreak halted football, Kane, Moussa Sissoko, Heung Min-Son and Steven Bergwijn were all sidelined through injury.

However, speaking to the official club website, the Portuguese confirmed he will have a full squad to pick from on June 17.

“In relation to the big injuries that ended in surgeries, Moussa, Sonny and Harry, yes, they are back,” he said.
