Tottenham Hotspur icon Paul Gascoigne has used his official Twitter account to urge the club to allow him to play in an upcoming legends’ game against Inter Milan.
The former England international, a star of the 1990 World Cup, became a hero at White Hart Lane, spending four years at the club prior to a move to Lazio in 1992.
Indeed, ‘Gazza’, as he is affectionately known, played a major role in the club’s 1991 FA Cup triumph after scoring a phenomenal free-kick in the semi-final against Arsenal.
And with Spurs hosting a legends’ match against Inter at their new stadium, Gascoigne has taken to Twitter to ask to be involved.
The London Evening Standard report that Spurs hope he will be involved, with Gary Mabbutt, a good friend of Gascoigne, said to be in contact with him over the possibility of the ex-midfielder playing.
And Spurs fans and ex-players alike have pleaded with the club to make it happen, reacting in their droves to their former hero’s tweet.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
Would be fantastic to see Gazza back at Tottenham the fans just love him.
