There's a Stamford Bridge legend in the studio this week who's as iconic and Italian as a Michelangelo fresco.

Gianluca Vialli joins Ben and Kammy on the Goals on Sunday couch to chat about his fantastic career in football.

The striker started out at home town club Cremonese, before moving to Sampdoria where he built up a lethal striking partnership with former Man City boss Roberto Mancini. The pair were dubbed 'The Goal Twins' and helped secure the club's first ever Serie A title in 1990/91, three Italian Cups and a UEFA Cup Winners Cup. We wonder how Gianluca would compare his partnership with Mancini to the burgeoning SAS strike force at Liverpool?

The back-flipping forward then joined Juventus in 1992 for a world-record fee of £12.5million, playing alongside Roberto Baggio and helping guide Juve to the Scudetto, a Coppa Italia and the Champions League in 1996. It's Deadline Day next Friday so we'll be sure to get Vialli's views on who could be making big money transfers in this window and whether we'll see any records broken.

Then Chelsea mananger Ruud Guillit bought Vialli in '96 and he quickly became a Stamford Bridge legend, FA Cup winner and then player-manager a couple of years later, instrumenting an FA Cup win and UEFA Cup Winners' Cup victory. Ben and Kammy will badger Gianluca for his views on the Blues' season under Jose Mourinho and their chances of lifting the Premier League trophy in May.

And finally, Vialli's international record with Italy was tumultuous to say the least! We'll ask him about that famous Azzurri World Cup exit on home soil in 1990 and get his views on Italy's chances in Brazil this year as they face in England in Group D's opening game.

So for all this, plus all the goals from the Sky Bet Championship and plenty more tip-top chat, tuck into Goals on Sunday, 11.30am, Sky Sports 1.
