I’m Battling Cancer – Chelsea Legend, Gianluca Vialli Cries Out

Chelsea legend Gianluca Vialli has revealed he is battling cancer for a second time.

The 57-year-old Italian who played for and managed Chelsea was first diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2017.

He was, however, given the all-clear in April 2020 after undergoing months of chemotherapy.

Since then, he has returned to work as a member of Roberto Mancini’s staff with the Italian national team.

But now the 57-year-old who won the FA Cup and League Cup with Chelsea, said the deadly illness has returned.

Speaking at a London book launch, he said, “I feel good, but my journey is not yet complete.

“The unwanted guest, as I call it, is still here with me. At this moment I am in maintenance mode.

“The tumour is still there. At times it is more noticeable, at others less so.

“I will keep fighting because I want to be here for many more years.
