Kevin Phillips has been shocked by how poor Troy Parrott’s loan spell at Millwall has been and he has urged Tottenham to bring him back home.
The Irishman looked like the next player to break through at Tottenham, and Jose Mourinho was even criticised for not using him when Harry Kane was injured earlier in the year.
He was sent out to Millwall on loan for the rest of the season so that he can get some much-needed experience under his belt.
But he has struggled to make an impact there. With no goals for them yet, he has understandably not been seeing action for them recently and Phillips thinks he should return.
He said that Spurs will help him better if he returns and trains with top quality players like those at Tottenham instead of struggling to play in a Championship team.
“I’m shocked that it hasn’t worked out for him at Millwall,” he told Football Insider.
“I was excited to see him go out on loan and work under a manager that I obviously know very well.
“It just has not worked out. Whether it is the style of play that Gaz is playing down or whether he is not gelling with the players, I do not know.
“He has not played a lot of football so it is probably best for all parties for him to go back to Tottenham. Then he can train with better players day in, day out and at the end of the season look to go out on loan again.
“I am surprised because everyone had high hopes for him. Everyone was talking about him last year but he has not taken his chance.”
