New fears for Gazza
11:58am Sunday 3rd February 2013 in News
PAUL Gascoigne’s agent has spoken of his fears for the former England footballer’s life after he started drinking again.
Gazza, 45, who has received treatment for his alcohol habit at a Bournemouth rehabilitation clinic, broke down on stage at a charity event in Northampton last Thursday.
His Christchurch-based agent Terry Baker said: “He won’t thank me for saying it but he immediately needs help. His life is always in danger because he is an alcoholic.”
Terry said he had not seen the former Newcastle, Tottenham and Lazio player, who lives in Boscombe, since before Christmas and added that Gazza was still “haunted” by the recent death of a friend.
When they last spoke he said Gazza had sounded “fairly incoherent” but Terry stressed that he hadn’t seen the former footballer drinking alcohol during the past two years.
