Tottenham legend Paul Gascoigne hopes to return to coaching.
The FA and England head physio Gary Lewin are organising a hip operation for the troubled star so he can play again.
Gazza, 45, has even lined up a role coaching kids at League One's AFC Bournemouth once fit.
He said: "I might start doing my coaching badges again. When I'm coaching I need to twist and turn properly so I can show the lads some of the amazing things I used to do."
