Chelsea Manager Maurizio Sarri Gets Through 80 Cigarettes Per Day

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri resorted to chewing/eating cigarettes on a number of occasions throughout the 2018/19 campaign.

It is believed that Sarri, who has been linked with the Juventus job in recent days, averages around four packets of cigarettes a day, so you can see why it would be difficult to avoid tobacco for such a long period.

Rumours at the start of the season even suggested that Chelsea would give their manager his very own smoking area at Stamford Bridge.

So how many cigarettes does he really smoke on a daily basis? According to reports, the Italian gets through 80 cigarettes a day.

That means if he's awake for 16 hours then Sarri will smoke five an hour. That is a cigarette every 12 minutes.

The guys over at Dream Team worked out that if a pack costs £11.50, then the Chelsea manager smokes £46 of his salary every day.

That works out at a hefty £1,400 every month!

Bundesliga side RB Leipzig once built a temporary wall in the away changing room to split the physio area and allow him space to smoke pre kick off and at half and full time.

But will his next potential club be prepared for his smoking habits?

Juventus have reached an agreement with Chelsea over a deal for Maurizio Sarri, according to Sky in Italy.

The Bianconeri have been on the hunt for a new manager after Max Allegri announced he was stepping down after five consecutive Scudettos.

Both Pep Guardiola and Antonio Conte were linked with the post, but it's new emerged that there is an "agreement in principle' for former Napoli boss Sarri to take the reins in Turin.

As per Di Marzio, Sarri is poised to sign a three-year deal at the Allianz Stadium and will be reunited with Giovanni Martusciello, his former assistant at Empoli.

Thoughts on a potential move to Juventus?
