Gascoigne to return for Lazio-Spurs

Paul Gascoigne will be present at Lazio's match with Tottenham on Thursday evening, according to the club's President Claudio Lotito.

The Biancocelesti play host to the north London club in the Europe League later this week, and contrary to reports that the 45-year-old would be unable to make the game, the Aguile owner has today announced that the former midfield, who played for both clubs during his prestigious career, will be present.

“I thought that it was an obligation of ours to remember a great champion,” he told Radio Lazio Style. “He is part of our history and impressed everyone whilst he was here with his determination, character and great play.

“Gascoigne is still in the hearts of many fans and I want to remind our younger supporters how much this club is prepared to represent this past and the values of the club.

“It has been very difficult, but I've finally got Gascoigne to come back. His affection for Lazio has never ceased.”
