'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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Vialli has chosen 90 tales from the familiar - Jesse Owens, Billie Jean King - to some lesser-known, such as Alfonsina Strada, a pioneering woman who competed in the Giro d'Italia in 1924. His own chapter comes right at the end... a stark, moving account of the brutal physical and mental toll of months of cancer treatment. * The Times *
The book ends with the most compelling story - as Vialli details how two bouts of cancer and chemotherapy affected him. * The Guardian *
Goals, a collection of 90 inspirational stories from the world of sport, seems particularly timely as society tries to cope with the ongoing agonies and disruption of the coronavirus crisis. * Mail on Sunday *
Goals is a fascinating list of people, some of whom you have never heard of and when you hear their stories you think to yourself "wow, that is incredible", as indeed is the career of Gianluca Vialli. * BBC Radio 5 Live with Nihal Arthanayake *
