A former player for Tottenham Wilson Palacios opines that the combination of Victor Wanyama and MousaDembele in the midfield changed the team for the better and not necessarily Harry Kane and Dele Alli that everyone raves about.
The team led by Coach Mauricio Pochettino has been very good in defence this term and it has helped in their surge. Palacios is saying the pair is the main reason the team is playing the way Pochettino wants as they provide a strong cover for the backline.
The career of Wilson Palacios has recently suffered a huge dip after the Honduran midfielder was released by the MLS side on November of 2016 and now the future of Palacios is starting to appear unclear.
Wilson Palacios has made his way through some of the biggest Premier League clubs with Tottenham Hotspur as he performed there from 2009 until 2011 but his reality right now is completely different as a few years ago.
Former Stoke City midfielder Wilson Palacios has revealed how losing his younger brother to armed kidnappers made him determined to tackle gang culture and end kidnapping.
Palacios was playing for Birmingham City in 2007 when his younger brother Edwin was abducted from his family house in Honduras by an armed gang before he was found dead a 19 months later.
“My brother was taken away from us by one of these gangs, they wanted money, so we paid the ransom, but he never came back to us.
“It was devastating. It changed my life and made me think I didn’t want any other children to go through the same things,” Palacios told Daily Star.
Mark Hughes has been in charge of Stoke City since May of 2013 and ever since then, he has pushed the club to the club to the 9th spot of the Premier League for 3 successive seasons but in this current season, things have fallen apart as they have only been able to secure 2 victories out of their 9 opening league matches of the season.
Stoke City is currently positioned at the bottom spots of the Premier League and are closely entering the relegation zone which is a huge surprise for a club that has consistently been able to get into the top 10.
Miami FC manager Alessandro Nesta says that he is happy to be coaching in the United States.
Regarded as one of the greatest defenders of this generation,Nesta has entered into the coaching world with a small step with Miami FC. Even though a player of his pedigree will receive coaching offers from around the world especially at the top of the game, Nesta has tried to go to the basic levels of the game in order to start from the scratch. This will give him a lot of experience when he eventually steps into the top level.
Stoke City finished the 2015-16 season of the Premier League on the 9th spot after having collected a total of 51 points in 38 matches.
Mark Hughes and the fans of the club want to see the squad doing a better job in the next season and signing a few new players can greatly help out the club in this journey.
One of the names that have been linked with Stoke City is SaidoBerahino of West Bromwich Albion. Berahino is a 23 year old attacker who has received praise by the media as he is a player that emulates Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto’o with a playing style that is similar to them in one way or another.
There was a point in time when Robin van Persie was considered to be one of the best attackers in the world of football but the Dutchman has been experiencing a downfall as he is playing with the Turkish outfit Fenerbahce and has not managed to perform at the high level that he did not too long ago.
Robin van Persie proved that he still has what it takes to perform at a world class level even at a fairly elevated as he scored a sublime goal in the opening game of the 2014 World Cup after connecting with a cross and chipping the ball past the likes of Iker Casillas.
