Troy Parrott's treatment by Mourinho is vastly different to my experience as a teenager at Everton

Jose Mourinho is not making life easy for Troy Parrott at Tottenham. In fact, the manager is killing the confidence of a young player who is still trying to find his way in the game.

Every time Parrott sits on the bench for Spurs, he's not going to be feeling confident. He will have listened to what the manager has said about him and will think to himself, I am only here because there's no one else.

It strikes me that Mourinho is trying to fight the Tottenham fans, and Troy is caught in the middle of it all, and all of the attention is causing a negative impact on him.
