Juventus manager, Maurizio Sarri, has revealed that he smokes 60 sticks of cigarette in one day.
Sarri, a 60-year-old former banker, is not only well known for his playing style (Sarri ball) as of his smoking habits off and on the pitch.
He averages around four packets of cigarettes a day and he has admitted it’s getting out of control.
“I smoke 60 a day, which is probably a few too many,” he revealed to La Nuova Riviera via Football Italia.
This means that the former Napoli boss spends 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,” he added.
The Italian, who has signed a three-year deal with Serie A champions, accepted that he’ll have to win over some fans considering his ties with Napoli.
“I arrive with skepticism, 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.”
Question: Is it right as a coach to smoke that way??
