Troy Parrott’s wings have been temporarily clipped. After rumors emerged on social media yesterday about something medically wrong with Tottenham Hotspur’s 20-year old Irish prodigy, the club made an announcement on their website explaining that Parrott has undergone surgery for an appendectomy after experiencing abdominal pain in training.

Troy Parrott has undergone surgery to remove his appendix.

The young striker was found to have early signs of appendicitis after reporting abdominal pain to our medical staff. He will now undergo a period of recovery before commencing rehabilitation and returning to training later in June.

Thankfully, it seems as though Spurs’ physios were able to diagnose the problem in the early stages. The fact that the club is expecting him back in training within a couple of weeks suggests that this was a relatively minor procedure as far as surgeries go, probably a laparoscopic one.

It’s not GREAT that Tottenham’s striker of the future is undergoing the knife right before football is due to start up again, but considering Mourinho already didn’t think he was ready for the Premier League this season, it’s unlikely we’d see him much anyway. Hopefully he can secure a good loan for next season and get some serious minutes under his belt.
