The former Lazio midfielder, Paul Gascoigne, admitted that he had ‘headbutted and stabbed’ his dad’s dead body.
The former England international spent three seasons at Lazio between 1992 and 1995, before moving to Glasgow Rangers.
The 53-year-old gave an interview with ‘The Whatever Goes Podcast,’ disclosing that he headbutted his dad’s dead body. He said, “I jumped on the bed and stabbed him because it was just us in the hospital bed, and he passed away. I headbutted and slapped him, and when I was younger, I had my own back. I just laid down and hugged him for 45 minutes, then.
It’s Saturdays that I miss him. He was so dry, however. He would have spoken to others, but he would not have spoken to me,” he added.
“When I was playing, I enjoyed taking him around the world with me. I’m all right at the moment, but I’ll be thinking about it, the good times I’ve had, probably I’ve had more good times than bad times. I must have purchased about 80 cars and 18 boats and houses for my dad.”
