Tottenham Hotspur head coach Jose Mourinho has come in for criticism from the club's own supporters after he chose not to select Troy Parrott for the FA Cup tie with Middlesbrough.

Parrott was not even named on the bench, just like against Liverpool at the weekend.

It had been hoped that the fact Boro are weaker opponents may be enough for Parrott to be selected in the squad.


Mourinho did find a place in the starting line up for Japhet Tanganga, and another youngster, Dennis Cirkin, who made the bench.

Parrott meanwhile was not involved at all, despite Harry Kane being out injured.

Tottenham did not need Parrott, winning comfortably, but the ease of victory suggested this was a game the young striker could have flourished in.
