‘I smoke SIXTY a day, probably a few too many’: New Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri reveals staggering extent of his famous habit
- Maurizio Sarri has revealed he smokes as many as 60 cigarettes every day
- Even the new Juventus boss admits that the number ‘is probably a few too many’
- The former Chelsea manager was often seen chewing cigarette filters at games
Maurizio Sarri has revealed the extent of his famous smoking habit, and it may be even worse than people originally imagined.
‘I smoke 60 a day, which is probably a few too many,’ he told La Nuova Riviera (via Football Italia).
When he was at Chelsea, Sarri would regularly be seen chewing on a cigarette filter before nipping off for a quick one after the match.

Smoking is prohibited in most areas of the Allianz Stadium, where Sarri will be on weekends
‘I don’t particularly feel the need to smoke during games, but straight afterwards it really is necessary,’ he said. ‘I had back problems tormenting me for weeks, but I feel much better now.’
Unfortunately for the new Juventus boss, smoking is prohibited in any area of the Allianz Stadium, except the designated smoking zones.
It seems unlikely that one of these smoking zones will be on the touchline.

While smoking is seen as a bad habit, Maurizio Sarri is hoping Cristiano Ronaldo will keep up his own habit of scoring goals next season.
The Italian wants Ronaldo to score at least 40 goals next season, after having a ‘tactical’ talk with the Portuguese star on his holiday yacht.
He’s also looking for more stability at the back, as Juventus close in on the £62million transfer of Ajax’s Matthijs de Ligt.
