Former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is known for his love of cigarettes with the Italian seen chewing cigarette butts during match days during his time at Stamford Bridge due to the smoking ban at Premier League grounds.

The Italian, who left for Juventus after just one season at Chelsea, has admitted he smokes 60 cigarettes daily.

“I smoke 60 a day, which is probably a few too many,” Sarri told La Nuova Riviera.

“I don’t particularly feel the need to smoke during games, but straight afterwards it really is necessary. I had back problems tormenting me for weeks, but I feel much better now.”

Sarri wore tracksuit on the touchline during his time at Chelsea but the Italian will be forced to wear a Juve suit on the touchline due to a clause in his contract.

Sarri said: “I prefer not to wear a Juventus suit on the pitch.

“Off the pitch, when I represent Juventus, I am obliged to wear it and it is written in my contract.

“But on the pitch, I would prefer not to, but we will discuss it.

“The important thing, at my age, is they don’t ask me to go naked.”

Sarri guided Chelsea to a third place finish in the Premier League and a Europa League title in his only season at Stamford Bridge.
