Today's Wilson Palacios Talking Points
Wilson Roberto Palacios Suazo (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈwilson roˈβeɾto paˈlaθjos ˈswaθo]; born 29 July 1984) is a Honduran footballer who plays as a midfielder. He is currently a free agent.
Born in La Ceiba, he played for Victoria and Olimpia in Honduras before moving to England, where he played for Birmingham City and Wigan Athletic. In 2009, he joined Tottenham Hotspur, generally playing central defensive midfield as he did for Wigan, though he was occasionally used as a right midfielder for Spurs. In August 2011, Palacios joined Stoke City for an undisclosed fee believed to be around £6 million. He struggled to make an impact in his four seasons at Stoke, however, and left the club in 2015. He subsequently had a spell in the North American Soccer League with Miami.
He has been a regular player for Honduras since 2003, helping them qualify for the 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cup editions.Close
