Ex-Newcastle Star In Really Bad Way
Born and bred on Tyneside, Gazza was one of the greatest talents to ever pull on the black and white shirt and some of his moments of genius are forever etched on my memory.
However, the Sunday Mirror apparently have an exclusive today with some very disturbing photos and this has prompted Gazza’s agent to plead with the Geordie legend to get the support and assistance he needs.
Paul Gascoigne’s agent, Terry Baker, has urged the ex-Newcastle player to get, “immediate help”. Gazza has apparently had a really bad time of it recently after a close friend died.
“I heard from Paul this evening (Saturday/yesterday) and my best assessment would be, and I’ve told him, he needs to immediately get some help.
Maybe no one can save him as his life is always in danger because he’s an alcoholic, as he says himself.
Paul is the nicest and most generous, lovely person, all he ever does is give to other people, but at the moment he’s not very well.
Paul, listen to me as you know I have your best interests at heart, you must do what you know you must do”.
Unfortunately, these kind of stories sell newspapers but knowing these distressing images of himself will be seen by thousands/millions of people will not exactly help the player. Maybe some fans would even say that by running this article we are minutely adding to his problems but the big difference is that it is because we do actually care about what happens to a player who gave us so much when playing for Newcastle United.
Good luck Gazza.
