Back in time, Wilson Palacios has been talking about his admiration for Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard, the two players that he respects the most when he was asked if he has identified any potential weakness for exploiting the team of Roy Hodgson in Miami in 2014.
He said that he could never speak badly of England and can only say good things about them. For him, England is his second country. It is difficult to imagine the humble man saying anything negative about anyone. Thus, it is easy to see why Harry Redknapp said that he is a lovely boy that anyone can ever meet. Even when Wilson Palacios talks about how frustrated he was during the first 2 years at Stoke City and tells an incredible story of how he had been left out by Tony Pulis since it was extremely windy. He stresses the significance of respecting his manager.
He is a hard-working place and is low maintenance. Red Knapp learned about his amazement when he was the manager of Tottenham Hotspur. Palacios never caused a fuss and when he was 29 years old, he had been enduring a harrowing time.
When he was in a Liverpool hotel before a game against Everton in 2009 May, he received a phone call from Honduras late at night informing him that the youngest of his four brothers, Edwin, had been found dead, after 19 months of being kidnapped.
He could have packed his bags and taken the next flight home, nobody would have questioned his action. However, he sat in the lobby of the hotel for 6 hours and waited patiently for Redknapp to wake up so that he could ask if he could miss the match. That is how he was as a player.
