London, Oct.10 (ANI): Former England footballer Paul Gascoigne has been told to have surgery on his legs or he faces the prospect of becoming a cripple for life. According to The Sun, though Gazza has been winning his booze battle since finding love with teetotal ex-model Sally Mulholland, 43, he requires hip surgery again. The forty-one-year-old ex-Spurs and England midfielder spent two hours at the private Princess Grace hospital on Thursday and is now expected to undergo surgery “within days”. He last had his hip surgery in December 2007. A family pal said: “He has been told he needs more surgery. Everyone is worried about the effect it will have on him. His career has taken its toll on his poor bones. He’’s been in a great deal of pain. What is worrying is that it was the operation at Christmas we all believe drove him to despair and drink. He lost the plot because he realised he”d never be able to kick a ball again at any level even a friendly. But without surgery he could end up crippled in a wheelchair.” (ANI)
