Redknapp issues Gascoigne open job offer

Saturday 23 August 2014

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has extended an offer to fallen football idol Paul Gascoigne of a small coaching role with the club’s younger players, according to the BBC, and insisted it was an open invitation.


Paul Gascoigne


Gascoigne has endured a series of personal and health problems, in particular his well-documented battle with alcohol, and was pictured in many of the national papers on Friday looking frail and gaunt – with emergency services reportedly called to his Dorset home.


The former player had recently signed for a Sunday league side and appeared to be in relatively good health before this latest setback.


The 47-year-old endeared himself to English football fans everywhere when he received a yellow card that ruled him out of the 1990 World Cup final should England win their semi-final and cried on the pitch – albeit they didn’t, in what is now one of football’s most iconic moments.


And now Redknapp, who lives close to Gascoigne, has offered the former Newcastle and Tottenham player the chance to share his skill and knowledge of the game with the youngsters at Loftus Road, even offering to drive him to and from training.


He said: “If he wants to do it I would pick him up every morning at 0545 at the end of his road and bring him in.


“He is a great lad and it is just sad to see how he is looking at the moment.


“I saw him about a month ago and I said 'I will pick you up in the mornings Gazza, come training with me. Do a little bit of work with the kids.'


“I would love it if he would do that, that is an open invitation to him.”
