Gazza ‘winning booze battles’
PAUL Gascoigne is winning his battle with booze thanks to support from fans.
The ex-England ace, 50, has struggled with alcohol addiction for years but “turned a corner” in recent weeks.
And his stepdaughter Bianca, left, says his legions of fans are helping Gazza to stay on track. She told the Daily Star Sunday: “There is so much support for dad. It’s lovely that he gets so much. It’s really heartwarming for us. And he’s really well at the moment.”
Gazza was looking upbeat last week at an “audience with” event in Birmingham, right.
He was beaming as he laughed and joked on stage and seemed a world away from the man who was close to death just a few years ago.
He is still loved by millions for his performances for clubs including Spurs, Newcastle, Rangers and at the 1990 World Cup with England.
Bianca said: “I get people asking about dad all the time. I like talking about him – he’s my dad and I love him so much. “It’s a pleasure to tell people about how he’s getting on and to talk about people’s memories of him playing.
“People like talking about his best moments. He’s a legend.”
