Gascoigne has been admitted to a treatment centre in the United States after he started drinking again. The former England and Spurs midfielder is reported to have received financial support from former team-mate Gary Lineker and celebrity friends Chris Evans and Piers Morgan towards the £6,000 a week fees that the clinic charges. And Tottenham, where Gascoigne spent four of his most successful years, have offered to support the 45-year-old through their trust, which was set up to help former players who fall on hard times. Press Association Tottenham will do everything they can to help Paul Gascoigne overcome his battle with alcoholism, manager Andre Villas-Boas said on Thursday. “The club is helping with the situation through the Tottenham Tribute Trust,” Villas-Boas said. “I think it’s extremely sad for a player who represents so much for Tottenham’s history. “Tottenham have made themselves available to help the situation. Hopefully Gazza can recover.” Gascoigne, who played nearly 100 times for the club and lifted the FA Cup in 1991, has suffered from alcoholism for large parts of his life. He looked in good health when he was guest of honour for Tottenham’s game at one of his other former clubs, Lazio, in November, but he was pictured looking worse for wear last weekend at an event in Northampton. His agent admitted following the publication of the pictures that Gascoigne had started drinking again.

He averaged 11.3 points while shooting 42.5% from the field in 46 games in 2018-19, but, he struggled with turnovers and was inconsistent for long stretches.“I only control what I can control,” Dunn told The Athletic in an interview after the 2018-19 season. “This summer, I’m excited because I actually know what my game is moving forward. The best thing for me is to be aggressive. I think that’s when I’m at my best. When they needed me to be aggressive, look at the numbers. The numbers don’t lie.” Related News The Bulls appear like they’re still shopping Kris Dunn.Chicago has recently discussed a sign-and-trade that would send the 25-year-old guard to the Grizzlies in exchange for wing Justin Holiday, according to a report from the Chicago Tribune, which cites unidentified league sources.

He spent just one season in Minnesota before he was sent to Chicago as part of the Jimmy Butler deal.“I’m not selfish,” Dunn said. “I do whatever it takes to win. I think the two years I’ve been here I showed what I can do defensively as a point guard. I made big-time shots. I took over games. Some people might let that go under the carpet, but it’s alright because I know what I can do. I’m not scared of the moment.”
