Former Brit Footballer Gazza at Risk of Becoming a Cripple Sans Second Surgery

Ex- English midfielder and widely regarded as one of the most gifted footballers of his generation, Paul Gascoigne (Gazza) faces the danger of being a cripple for life. The choice doctors have given him is between surgery on his legs and being maim for the rest of his days.

According to The Sun, though Gazza has been winning his booze battle since finding love with teetotal ex-model Sally Mulholland, 43, he requires hip surgery again.


The forty-one-year-old ex-Spurs and England midfielder spent two hours at the private Princess Grace hospital on Thursday and is now expected to undergo surgery "within days". He last had his hip surgery in December 2007. 

A family pal said: "He has been told he needs more surgery. Everyone is worried about the effect it will have on him.

His career has taken its toll on his poor bones. He's been in a great deal of pain. What is worrying is that it was the operation at Christmas we all believe drove him to despair and drink.

He lost the plot because he realized he'd never be able to kick a ball again at any level, even a friendly. But without surgery he could end up crippled in a wheelchair."
