Paul Gascoigne reportedly says that he thought he was going to die during his latest alcohol addiction.

Paul Gascoigne has said that doctors thought he was going to die after his latest alcohol problems.

The 45-year-old returned to England this week after a period at a rehabilitation clinic in the United States.

He told The Sun: "Three doctors didn't think I would make it.

"It has got to inspire me to never let this happen again. I've come through that - death. I was dead."

Former England, Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur and Lazio midfielder Gascoigne was admitted to the clinic because of a public breakdown in Northampton. He has now vowed to stay sober.
