Report claims Spurs are refusing to turn to striker due to links with Irish CRIME family

It was clear that something was going on with Troy Parrott at Spurs, but this could be much more sinister than expected.

Most fans would think this was just Jose Mourinho proving a point about how thin the squad is and continuing his long held tradition of keeping youngsters out of the team, but there could be more to it.

Spurs have big problems up front right now, Harry Kane and Son are both long term injury casualties and Parrott is banging them in at youth level, so he should at least get a chance.

That makes these claims from The Secret Footballer Twitter account even more interesting:

Those claims are huge and obviously unverified at this point, but it would explain why he’s not even close to getting a look in just now.

It also makes you wonder what Parrott would have to do to help smooth this over and find his way into the team, but if this is anywhere close to the truth then it suggests he won’t be playing anytime soon.
