TOTTENHAM bench warmer Wilson Palacios has taken to the field for today’s clash with Everton.
And the player can thank his mother for the chance to impress.
Manager Harry Redknapp said: “I was out shopping in London with my wife the other day and we met Wilson and his mum.
“She couldn’t speak English but through someone else who was there she told me she’s come all the way to England to watch him play and I haven’t been playing him.
“I just said: ‘Don’t worry Mrs Palacios, he’ll play, he’ll play.'”
