Troy Parrott's Career Arc Under Conte Becomes Clearer

Troy Parrott's Career Arc Under Conte Becomes Clearer
By Luke Delaney Updated

After an impressive second half of last season with MK Dons in League One, Troy Parrott has returned to Spurs for their Pre Season tour of South Korea.

The Dubliner caught the eye of supporters and the media during some of Antonio Conte's hectic fitness drills and finished first in a fitness drill in front of thousands during an opening training session in Seoul.

Parrott has spoke about what his manager has asked him to do and it looks like the Ireland international is expected to leave on loan again this season, but Tottenham will be careful in choosing where his next destination will be.

Spurs see Parrott as a number 9 rather than the number 10 role he was playing with MK Dons last season, and should the former Belvedere man look to seal a move away, the promise of playing as a striker is likely going to be a deciding factor.

Despite playing in a slightly deeper role, Parrott bagged 10 goals and helped MK Dons to a spot in the playoffs.

Football London are reporting that numerous Championship clubs are eager to take Parrott on loan. QPR, Middlesbrough, Preston and Swansea are all in a fight for his signature.

Troy Parrott on Antonio Conte

During an interview with Football London, Troy Parrott opened up on what it's like working under Antonio Conte and what the Italian manager is looking for from him.

Parrott said:

"During training he came in and helped me with some little stuff. Just telling me what he wants from the attacking players and that's all I can ask for really,

"Our position is important for the press. It's a different energy and then in possession just being an option and being available for players when they've got the ball. Making sure I'm there to receive the ball."

After impressing with his fitness levels in the past few days of pre season, Troy Parrott spoke about the work he's been doing in the off season and how he is aiming to build up his physicality.

"It's going to come, more physically with age, as you get older. I'm working hard on it. I was working hard in the off-season to try to get more strength and I feel strong, I feel good."

With Parrott eyeing up a place in the first team squad for the 2023/24 season, a full season at the right club in the Championship will prove beneficial to the striker's all round game and his chances at breaking through into the first time.
