Serie A champions Juventus are reportedly ‘irritated’ by manager Maurizio Sarri after he ‘refused to stop smoking’ despite being diagnosed with Pneumonia.
The 60-year-old, who averages around four packs of cigarettes a day, missed the club’s first league game of the season against Parma on Saturday after club doctor’s advised him to take a rest.
Sarri’s condition has improved sufficiently in recent days but Juventus are still concerned about their manager’s smoking habits.
Sarri was pictured holding a pack of cigarettes while outside his home this week, which prompted the Italian side to be displeased with the former Chelsea boss.
Juventus defeated parma in the Opening game of their campaign.
