Everyone, we have some really sad news from the football world: Gianluca Vialli, an Italian legend who played for Chelsea, died at the age of 58. He died on January 5 from pancreatic cancer, and we want to send our deepest condolences and apologies to his family. May his soul rest in heaven. It was a huge surprise for both the legend and his family. He was born on July 9, 1964, and he used to play as a forward.
In 1992, he was sold to Juventus for 12 million dollars, which was the most ever paid for an ODI player. He had a height of 5 feet 11 inches. He began his youth career in 1973 and scored 23 goals in 105 games.
In 1996, his life changed when he joined the English club Chelsea and scored 22 goals. There are 488 experiences and 167 goals on the record. Over the course of 7 years, he played in 59 games for the Italian national team and scored 16 goals. Gianluca’s time as a manager wasn’t very long, and it ended with Watford in 2002.
He was the coach of the 1999 Chelsea team for only one season. After he retired, he was very interested in becoming a manager and giving commentary for different channels. He was also a delegation chief for the national team.
Later, it was found out that he had pancreatic cancer, which was getting worse. It definitely hurt his career as a player. He grew up in Italy with his four siblings in a house with sixty rooms. His father liked golf. He later moved to the London club Chelsea, where he also played.
He had been fighting the disease for a long time but never told anyone. He was a real Warrior. He was able to win Serie A with Sampdoria in 1990. He was able to help the Italian giants win the Champions League in 1995 and then the UEFA Cup after that.
He was able to help Chelsea win the FA Cup and the League Cup in 1997. He had a chance to win the 1990 FIFA World Cup with Italy, but he didn’t take it. Instead, he got the bronze medal.
Individually, he was the top scorer in the European championship for players under 21 with four goals, and in 1988, he was part of the European championship team of the tournament.
When he was Chelsea’s manager, he won the Super Cup of the League Cup and the Football Association Cup. We’ll be back soon with more news, but in the meantime, keep reading the articles on our website. He really liked the game, he did a lot for it, and fans loved him.
