In a colourful career former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paul Gascoigne created some of football’s most enduring images.
Whether it was his stunning individual goal and dentist’s chair celebration against Scotland at Euro ’96, his tears at Italia ’90 or his stunning FA Cup semi-final free-kick against Nottingham Forest, Gascoigne’s career was as brilliant as it was bonkers and – ultimately – disappointing.
Loved at Newcastle United, Spurs, Rangers and Lazio, ‘Gazza’ never consistently hit the heights his talent promised. But he was one of the most colourful characters in the 1990s and loved by the nation.
In this exclusive sit-down interview with Football Whispers TV, Gascoigne discusses that goal against Scotland at Wembley, playing for the Three Lions, dealing with the fame and adulation of being ‘Gazza’, and Manchester United and England skipper Wayne Rooney.
