Mourinho tells why he gave the ball to Tottenham talent

Jose Mourinho has revealed why he gave Tory Parrot the match ball in Tottenham Hotspur's 5-0 win over Burnley.

The Spurs won against Premier League rival Harry Goes, Luvas Mouras, Son Heung-Min and Moussa Sissokos.

But attention then shifted to the 17-year-old making his debut at Tottenham this weekend and seen as one of England's most promising talents.

"He played as a 17-year-old today in the Premier League, it was his debut and it makes a lot of sense for him," Mourinho said.

"He was playing with his peers last week, but now he has the chance to show himself and play well," the Portuguese added.

Mourinho has suggested that the chance will come to some of the most talented players in the academy, but that he will only get some in the first team.
