Giovanni was his security officer while he played for Italian club Lazio in the early 1990s.
He told Gazza, on an island in Honduras: “Remember the crazy times we had together, Paul?
“It was more protecting people from you and your practical jokes.”
Giovanni joined joker Gazza on trips back to his native Newcastle and told The Sun of one night out in Chinatown.
