English football legend Paul Gascoigne had been moved back to the rehabilitation clinic in Arizona, United States 16 days after he first checked himself in to try to finally beat his alcohol addiction, after suffering a seizure in the hospital during his withdrawal process.

According to a close friend, Gazza had a seizure after the first week at the Cottonwood clinic, adding to fears that he may have suffered a major organ break-down, the Mirror reports.

The friend added that the former star has been told that he would have to stay in the clinic for at least two months for a complete recovery, during which he won't be allowed to meet anyone.

It was estimated that Gazza was already down to his last 250,000 pounds when he faced a bankruptcy hearing in 2008 over a tax demand of around 200,000 pounds.

According to his solicitor Craig Montgomery, Gazza had no regular income, relying on book deals, personal -appearances and some overseas business interests. (ANI)
