I WANT TO INSPIRE PEOPLE.
I WANT SOMEONE TO LOOK AT ME AND SAY:
“BECAUSE OF YOU I DIDN’T GIVE UP”
Goals is a very personal and deeply-moving collection of life-affirming and inspirational real-life stories from which Chelsea and Italy football legend Gianluca Vialli has drawn great strength and resolve during his battle with pancreatic cancer. The stories and the individuals involved have been selected by Vialli because they have offered him comfort and inspiration at the time of his greatest challenge, and he feels that they can do the same for many of us, whatever it might be that we are facing. The result is a beautifully-written and touching narrative which is by turns vital and poignant, spine-tingling and heart-rending. The very last story in Goals is Vialli’s own, bravely and movingly chronicling his battle with this cruel illness.
About the Author: Born in the Italian city of Cremona in 1964, Gianluca Vialli started his career with his hometown club of Cremonese. He then played for Sampdoria and Juventus, winning both Serie A and a European trophy with each of those clubs. In 1996 he moved to London to play for Chelsea, and rapidly established himself as a folk hero amongst the Stamford Bridge faithful. With Chelsea he won the FA Cup, the League Cup and the European Cup Winners’ Cup. Following retirement in 1999, Vialli had spells managing both Chelsea and Watford. For his country, he won 59 caps and scored 16 goals between 1985 and 1992, playing at two World Cup finals. Gianluca Vialli is married with two children, and divides his time between London and Italy.
