Wilson Palacios


Wilson Roberto Palacios Suazo is a Honduran footballer who plays in the Premier League for Stoke City. Though he generally plays as a central defensive midfielder, he is also occasionally used as a right midfielder. Palacios, along with his brothers, started his football career with Deportivo Victoria and was later transferred to Olimpia where he made 102 appearances and scored 32 goals. He quickly came into the international spotlight after winning five league titles with Olimpia. He is famously remembered for scoring a goal from the half-way line against Marathón in the final minutes of a game in 2006. On 24 August 2007, in an effort to expand his horizon to the European leagues, Palacios joined Birmingham City on a six month loan. Due to unfavourable conditions, the move was not made permanent. On 11 January 2008, Palacios joined Wigan Athletic and made his debut the following day against Derby County. He became a vital element in the team's success, so much so that when he was transferred to Tottenham Hotspur. His loss was bemoaned by the manager Steve Bruce. In August 2011, Palacios joined Stoke City for an undisclosed fee believed to be around £6 million.
