footy news blog

Tottenham Hotspur and England legend Paul Gascoigne has been battling mental health issues for ages, today he has spoken to The Sun.

When Gascoigne was staying in a hotel in Newcastle, he bought two toy parrots, at one point he thought that they were real. It is thought that Gazza has been clean and sober for three months, congrats to him and I hope he gets better soon.

Gazza said: “I looked in the mirror one day and remember one of the parrots saying ‘I can see two of you’. I looked around and saw the two parrots having a conversation – or at least I thought they were. I started to think they were real and once ordered three pints – one for me and one each for the parrots.

“I’d get them to talk until the batteries ran out. Then I’d get room service to change the batteries. A few minutes later I looked for them, forgot the porter had taken them to change the batteries and thought they had flown away. The porter brought them back with new batteries and I shoved them under the shower as a punishment for flying away.”
