Former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel has urged the Professional Footballers' Association to help troubled former England Paul Gascoigne overcome his personal problems. 

English football hero Paul Gascoigne (C) waves to supporters on November 22, 2012 at the Olympic stadium in Rome. His agent, Terry Baker, has told BBC radio the former Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur, Lazio and Rangers star, who has battled alcoholism and depression for many years, "immediately needs to get some help".

"This is not fun watching. Gazza needs help. Come on PFA & (PFA chief executive) Gordon Taylor, time to step up," Schmeichel wrote on Twitter after Gascoigne's agent Terry Baker told BBC radio on Saturday that the former Newcastle United, Tottenham, Lazio and Rangers star urgently needs help.
