Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho will hand Troy Parrott a Champions League debut next week against Bayern Munich.
The Premier League side are already through to the knock-out stages and Mourinho is set to make the most of this opportunity by starting several younger squad players.
Speaking ahead of their clash with Burnley, the club's recently appointed manager dismissed the idea that next Wednesday's tie is irrelevant.
"Not for me. Not for Tottenham. Not for the objectives, no," he said. "Because we are going to finish second. It doesn't matter the result, but it's very important for the players. Very important for the players that are going to play.
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.
Parrott made his international debut last month and has played at the Allianz Arena already in a pre-season competition. He has continued to train with the first team since Mauricio Pochettino departed.
