Born in Scandiano, Reggio Emilia, Vecchi played with Milan from 1967 to 1974, and joined Calcio Como in 1976. In his five years with the club, Como endured a rollercoaster ride through Serie B and Serie C1 before making the top flight in 1980, where they remained as he departed after the 1980–81 campaign; Como were relegated back to Serie B the following season.
In 2013, Vecchi was announced as the new goalkeeper coach for Real Madrid; under Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti, he trained Iker Casillas, Diego López, Keylor Navas, and Pacheco during his spell with the club. On 25 May 2015, Vecchi left his job at the Spanish side following club president Florentino Perez's decision to sack Ancelotti who had failed to win a major tournament in his second season with the club.
His first name is often misinterpreted as William.
