Gazza Takes A Turn

Gazza Takes A Turn

We had conflicting reports over the weekend that Paul Gascoigne was close to death and the paper that reported it was rather sensationalised in their words, so you can kind of understand why some people would take it as gospel.

However, those of us who take the time to analyse words or get second opinions from elsewhere, soon understand that there is always more than one version of an event.

Gazza, as we know, has had problems for years with alcohol or what not and this latest spell in a American rehab clinic is seen by many as the last chance saloon, to excuse the pun, so there will always be stories around that he has fallen at his probable final fence.

However on this instance the official word from the camp close to what's going on, Gary Mabbutt, explained the real story.

The ex Spurs team mate of Gazza said 'The first thing he underwent was a detox - unfortunately Paul had a very bad reaction to the detox and the clinic decided that as a precaution it was best to transfer him to hospital.

'He was transferred to hospital in intensive care where they could monitor him 24-7, but I spoke to Paul's medical team in the UK this morning - they had spoken to Paul and he's recovering and hopefully soon he will be back into the clinic to continue his rehab.

'Over the years he has had a lot of support from the football family, but of course it could be a long road to recovery. Now Paul's asked for the help we can focus on getting through this.'
