Paul Stalteri (born 18 October 1977) is a Canadian soccer player[1 ] who currently plays for Borussia Mönchengladbach in the German 1. Bundesliga.[2]

Contents

Early life

Stalteri was born to a Calabrese father and a Guyanese mother. Notable cousins are Justin Gilio, Joshua Gilio, and Kevin Gilio[1 ]

Club career

A defender who can play either side of the field as well as in midfield, Paul began his soccer career playing one year of college soccer at Clemson University in 1996, the same university where fellow North American soccer player Oguchi Onyewu played. Following his freshman year, he elected to turn professional, signing a contract with the Toronto Lynx while attending York University. After playing one season with the Lynx, alongside fellow Canadian National Team team-mate Dwayne De Rosario, where he led the team in scoring with eight goals and two assists, Stalteri was noticed by a scout from Werder Bremen and purchased from the team. After two years in the reserves, Paul made his debut with the club in August 2000, scoring in the first game of the season against Energie Cottbus.

During the 2001-02 season, Stalteri established his role in the first team at Bremen and went on to cement his role as a regular in the 2002-03 season. In 2003-04, Stalteri became the first Canadian player to win the Bundesliga as Werder Bremen won the league championship.

In May 2005, Stalteri transferred to English Premiership outfit Tottenham Hotspur.[3] He featured heavily in the 2005-2006 campaign as Spurs narrowly missed out on a Champions League place, but the arrival of full back Pascal Chimbonda at White Hart Lane the following season limited his chances.

On March 4, 2007, after coming on as a substitute, he scored a dramatic last minute winner against London rivals West Ham United to complete an extraordinary 4-3 win.[4] He had hardly featured in the first team all season up to that point. His other Spurs goals came against Manchester City in the league[5] and Leicester City in the FA Cup.[6]

On 31 January 2008, Stalteri moved to Fulham on loan until the end of the season. He made his debut for Fulham away at Middlesbrough on 9 February 2008 where his team lost 1-0.[7] Having returned to White Hart Lane, his contract was terminated by mutual consent on the 21 December 2008.[8]

Borussia Mönchengladbach

Stalteri has now returned to the Bundesliga, having been immediately signed by Borussia Mönchengladbach.[2][9]

International career

Stalteri has been a regular with the Canadian national team for several years since making his debut in August 17, 1997 against Iran. As of 19 November 2009, he has a total of 79 caps, and has scored 7 goals for the national team. That makes him the second most capped Canadian of all time. [10]He was named team captain for a friendly on 1 June 2007 against Venezuela, and has remained captain for each of the seven international fixtures played since then, including the entirety of the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
