Grinning Maurizio Sarri Pulls Out A Cigar To Celebrate Chelsea's Europa League Triumph
Maurizio Sarri celebrated Chelsea's 4-1 thrashing of Arsenal in the Europa League final with style after he was spotted whipping out a cigar.
Oh, yes! The Blues boss knows how to celebrate a big win for his side. The 60-year-old Italian is known for loving a cigarette, and while he's been unable to smoke them on the touchline, there have been times where he was spotted chewing/eating his cigarettes in the dugout.
Not today, though. Chelsea beat their London rivals and a beaming Sarri showed off his cigar to his players, with even Ross Barkley finding his manager's antics hilarious.

What a legend!
Remember that point about cigarettes? Well, Sarri was in for another treat.
The former Napoli head coach, who has been linked with a move to Juventus, received a pack of cigarettes at his post-match press conference and, unsurprisingly, seemed absolutely delighted when he received them.
Sarri's first season at Chelsea ended on a high note, helping to lead his side to a third-placed finish in the Premier League and also capturing some important silverware.
While his future remains uncertain at the club, the Chelsea manager admitted that he deserves to stay on in his managerial post after what he achieved this season.
"I need to talk to the club and make sure I know what I can do for Chelsea and what Chelsea can do for me," he said (via BBC Sport).
"I love the Premier League and I'm lucky I'm at Chelsea, but at the end of each season, you have to sit down and talk.
"In my opinion, I deserve to stay at Chelsea but my opinion is not enough.
"I have a contract [for another two years]. At the moment, we are talking about nothing."
Chelsea defender David Luiz had nothing but praise for his manager's impact at Stamford Bridge.
"We had some ups and downs, but we have improved a lot and learned a lot this season," he said.
"We finished well and won a trophy. It is my third title in Europe with Chelsea, they believe in my game.
"Sarri is a great guy, a great coach and he deserves this.
"The manager did amazing for this club. I don't know about speculation, now is the time to talk about the title."
Should Chelsea stick with Sarri?
