 Maradona Offers To Help Gazza Kick Alcohol Addiction
Argentina football team coach Diego Maradona has offered to help fallen England football hero Paul Gascoigne kick the booze habit.

According to the Daily Star, Maradona has invited Gazza to his home to ensure that he stays sober.

Maradona, 48, who has beaten cocaine addiction, reckons he is the perfect influence to keep the England legend on the wagon.

Gazza, 41, revealed in a TV interview how he was contacted by Maradona, whose infamous "Hand of God" goal knocked England out of the 1986 World Cup.

Maradona was reportedly moved by the plight of the ex-Newcastle and Spurs hero, who was last year sectioned under the Mental Health Act after a 30-lagers-a-day booze bender.

Doctors even had to restart his heart three times in rehab.
