Palacios pleads with Bruce to stick with Birmingham

Wilson Palacios is pleading with manager Steve Bruce to stay at Birmingham City.

Aware of Wigan Athletic's approach for the gaffer, the Honduras international told setantasports.com: "I hope that he is going to stay because he is a good coach.

"He backed me a lot and he is the one who made me do my first steps in The Premier League.

"If it is a good opportunity for him and if he wants to leave, then I understand his decision, because he has to do what is the best for himself.

"I do not wish that he leaves, but if he is replaced by another manager, I hope that this new one will like my football," he added. "If not, I will look at other options."
