Ex-Chelsea striker, Gianluca Vialli dies aged 58


Former Chelsea striker and Ex-Italian international, Gianluca Vialli has passed away at age 58 due to pancreatic cancer that he battled since 2017.


Vialli was first diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2017 and then for a second time in 2021, shortly after Italy’s Euro 2020 triumph.


He quit his role with Italy in December, citing his need to undergo treatment for the disease.


Vialli won the Champions League with Juventus in 1996 and was pronounced dead in the early hours of January 6th.


He was part of the coaching team of Roberto Mancini’s Italian Euro 2020 victory but had to step down from his role after dreaded cancer made a painful return back in 2021.


The deaths of Pele and Sinisa Mihajovic have left an open wound in the hearts of football fans, now leaving more pain with the death of another legend.


Born in the city of Cremona, Vialli started his football journey at Cremonese and won promotion to Serie B which brought Vialli attraction from different clubs.
