Spurs Help Gazza - But Can He Help Himself?

07 February 2013 04:31
Andre Villas-Boas says Tottenham will do everything it can to help Paul Gascoigne overcome his battle with alcoholism.

Gazza has been admitted to a treatment centre in the United States and the 45-year-old is reportedly receiving financial support from former Spurs team-mate Gary Lineker and celebrity friends Chris Evans and Piers Morgan.

Gascoigne, who played nearly 100 times for Tottenham after joining them from Newcastle in 1988, has suffered from alcoholism for large parts of his life.

Andre Villas-Boas: "The club is helping with the situation through the Tottenham Tribute Trust.

"I think it's extremely sad for a player who represents so much for Tottenham's history.

"Tottenham have made themselves available to help the situation. Hopefully Gazza can recover."
