Maurizio Sarri Spotted Holding Pack Of Cigarettes Throughout Arsenal Game

Most Premier League managers carry a notebook to pen down their analysis throughout the game, Maurizio Sarri, on the other hand, does things slightly differently.

If you didn't catch last week's action, Chelsea's opening game of the season saw Sarri resort to chewing cigarettes on the touchline against opponents Huddersfield.

Well, guess what: he's been at it again this afternoon in the club's first home game of the 2018/19 campaign.

English football grounds have a strict no-smoking policy, but despite the 59-year old being unable to smoke at Stamford Bridge, he instead held a packet of cigarettes.

I guess that's the nearest thing, right?

He was also spotted chomping on some unlitten cigs on the side of the pitch as he watched his team battle back against Arsenal.

Sarri, who led Napoli to two second-place finishes in three seasons at the Stadio San Paolo, averages around five packets of cigarettes a day, so you can see why it would be difficult to avoid tobacco for such a long period.

As mentioned earlier, smoking was banned from all stadiums in July 2007, which means the 59-year-old wouldn't be able to spark up during the 90 minutes.

In accordance with Smokefree England, it is against the law to smoke anywhere inside the stadium at Stamford Bridge. This includes the use of e-cigarettes."

But that didn't stop him from chewing a cigarette on the bench, as well as holding a pack to satisfy his cravings.
