Gianluca Vialli sadly died Friday 6th January aged 58 and if you are not into football you probably don’t know who he is.
Gianluca Vialli wrote one of the best books on football I have ever read in my humble opinion (IMHO), and if you need to buy a present for someone who likes football and also likes a good read this is a slam dunk, two birds with one stone, win-win, you can’t lose.
He began his career at Cremonese, his hometown club, before starring in Serie A for Sampdoria and Juventus, and ended his playing career at Chelsea before going into management and coaching. He scored 16 goals in 59 appearances for Italy and featured in the Azzurri’s 1986 and 1990 World Cup squads. Most recently he was Roberto Mancini’s assistant when England lost on penalties to Italy in the Euro 2020 final. Ugh!
And remember if you do buy it and buy it through Amazon, please go through Amazon Smile and select Healthy Generations as your charity of choice. If you go through Amazon Smile each time you login to Amazon everything you buy generates a small donation from Amazon and it doesn’t affect the price you pay; they cough it up!
And thoughts for Gianluca even though he helped beat us with his damned positivity! Gawd bless ‘im!
