Troy Parrott looks set to make his Champions League debut next week when Tottenham take on Bayern Munich.
With both teams having already qualified for the knockout stages of the tournament, Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he intends to field a youthful team against the German giants.
Mourinho has confirmed that Parrott will be part of a line-up that will also include Kyle Walker-Peters, Oliver Skipp and Ryan Sessegnon. The 17-year-old played at the Allianz Arena for Spurs during their pre-season Audi Cup tournament and now he looks set to return to the venue for his European debut.
“It’s a great opportunity for young people. A great opportunity for the development of these young players, the Walker-Peters, the Skipps, the Parrotts, the Sessegnons, all these young players that we have, it’s a great opportunity for them.
“Of course there is the prestige of the club also involved, and we are going to try to go with a team that gives us some guarantees to try to fight for a result that we don’t need, but a result that we want.
“If you want to look for the positive side of it, and not to the negative side, it is to say that lots of young players are going to have a good opportunity to play in an amazing stadium, amazing competition, against top players.
“Even if Bayern rest two or three or four, I don’t know if they do, but even if they do, you look to the players that normally are their second choices, and they have even World Cup players like for example Javi Martinez. So it will be a great opportunity for the boys, and very important for me to go with them.”
