Jérôme Palatsi (born 10 December 1969) is a French football coach and a former player who played as a goalkeeper.

Having had no impact as a professional in his country of birth, he spent the bulk of his senior career in Portugal, appearing in 180 Primeira Liga games mainly at the service of Vitória de Guimarães and retiring already in his 40s.

Football career[edit]

Palatsi was born in Béziers, Hérault. After only three matches as a professional at Montpellier HSC over the course of five seasons (although two were spent on loan), he moved to the lower leagues in the country.

In 1996, Palatsi started a Portuguese adventure that would last nearly 15 years, starting at S.C. Beira-Mar. At the Aveiro club and his second, Vitória de Guimarães, he was sometimes charged with penalty-taking, scoring a total of four goals in the Primeira Liga.[1][2]

From 2005 onwards, Palatsi played mostly in the country's second division, first signing with Moreirense F.C. then moving F.C. Penafiel. Aged almost 39 he returned to Beira-Mar also in that level, and retired two years later after a brief stint with amateurs A.A. Avanca.

With Beira-Mar again in the top flight, Palatsi returned to the club as goalkeeper coach.
