60-year-old coach of Juventus football club Maurizio Sarri, has disclosed to the public that he smokes about 60 cigarettes a day.
The former Chelsea boss has admitted that his smoking habit has become a serious condition that requires some assistance as he now averages about four packets daily.
“I smoke 60 a day, which is probably a few too many,” he revealed to La Nuova Riviera via Football Italia.
That works out at a whopping £1,400 every month.
“I don’t particularly feel the need to smoke during games, but straight afterwards it really is necessary,” he added. “I had back problems tormenting me for weeks, but I feel much better now.”
Sarri, whose signed a three-year deal at Juventus after his stint at Chelsea, also admitted that he would have to win over some fans considering his ties with Napoli.
“I arrive with scepticism, just as I did with all my other clubs,” he said at his unveiling.
“I understand that, but I know only one way to change that and that is to win and convince while entertaining and getting results.
“For three years [at Napoli] I would wake up and think about how to defeat Juventus, because they were a winning team. I gave 110%, but we still couldn’t do it. I will now give everything for this club.”
