Paul Gascoigne has taken to Twitter to address concerns about his wellbeing.
The former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder was a guest on Sky’s Soccer AM programme but his early exit from the show sparked rumours that he had started drinking again.
After leaving Soccer AM midway through the show, host John Fendley told viewers the 51-year-old was “not feeling wonderful”.
Gascoigne responded to concerns on social media which suggested he “looked out of it” during the show.
Writing on Twitter, he said people were “saying I was drunk”, but went on to explain that he had “been taking sleeping tablets to try kip”.
Gazza has struggled with alcoholism for more than 20 years, but recently appears to have turned a corner.
Ignore the negativity, Gazza. All the Spurs fans are behind you and are looking forward to you visiting the new stadium.
In case you missed it…
