Wilson Palacios admits that it will be a dream to play for Tottenham at Wembley.

The midfielder has made a massive impact in the Spurs midfield since his switch from Wigan and is relishing the prospect of facing Barcelona tomorrow.

“When I first arrived in England one of my dreams was to play at Wembley Stadium,” He told the official Spurs site. “Unfortunately, I couldn’t play in the final of the Carling Cup, but now I will get that chance.

“We all looking forward to playing Barcelona. They have so many players – Messi, Iniesta, Eto’o, Xavi – and are one of the best teams in the world.

“If they all play, I could be up against Iniesta, Xavi and Ya Ya Toure in central midfield and you have to look forward to games like that.

“They are the European champions, the Spanish champions and it will be a great test for us.”

  1. Palacios is one of the three best reasons to be optimistic about next season. The others being Luka and controversially – the signing of Crouch!

  2. Hopefully Palacios can pick up where he left off last season before departure due to his family tradedy. Can’t remember a spurs midfield dynamo of his calibure since supporting spurs in 86. Always had quality, style and class in that department but no one to lay down marker and set the tone. His signing was undoubtedly the turning point of our season and lead me to believe Arry may just know what he doing.
