Gazza in hospital following another booze bender, faces being made homeless
Former England international Paul Gascoigne, popularly known as Gazza, was in hospital on Thursday as he faces being made homeless following another drinking spree.
Paramedics and cops were called after Gazza was seen slumped outside his flat clutching a bottle of vodka. The football legend was in the process of being evicted by his landlord from the property where neighbours had recently complained of the noise.
As he was taken away from his 3 million pounds rented penthouse apartment in the exclusive Sandbanks area of Poole, Dorset, Gazza phoned a friend to say that he is in trouble, and could he please come and help him, The Mirror reported.
He was being treated at Poole Hospital on Thursday.
A friend of Gazza said that it is very sad, but added that the reality is that the retired footballer has been drinking for the past few weeks and once that happens things will only end one way.
He added that things came to a head on Thursday. The friend also said that Gaza has had a lot on his plate as he is in the process of trying to find somewhere to live.
Gazza's friend said that the footballer's landlord had given him 10 days to get out of the flat and it was weighing on his mind. He added that things obviously became too much for Gazza in the past couple of days and he has turned back to the bottle.
