Martin Palermo

Martin Palermo is a Argentine professional footballer currently playing for Boca Juniors of Argentina. Nicknamed "El Loco", he has also played in Argentina for Estudiantes de La Plata as well as in Spain for Villarreal CF, Real Betis, and Deportivo Alaves.

Palermo signed with the up and coming team Villarreal of the Spanish La Liga on January 19, 2001 in a 7.600.000 transfer. In his second season with the team on November 29, after celebrating a goal, Palermo stood on a small concrete wall, which collapsed under the weight of Villarreal's fans and broke both the tibia and fibula of his left leg, leading to two months of inactivity. Palermo never regained his form and after two and half seasons with Villarreal, on August 20, 2003, he decided to cut his ties with the club.

The following day on August 21, Martin signed a contract with Real Betis, but on March 2004 after very little success with the club he decided to cut his ties with Real Betis. Later that month he signed with Deportivo Alaves of the Spanish Segunda Division.
