‘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.
