Maurizio Sarri

Maurizio Sarri has solved the issue. He has figured out how to control his smoking urges during Chelsea games.

We joked about Sarri’s addiction prior to his arrival at Stamford Bridge, but we never anticipated that it would actually be an issue for the Italian. It turns out he does need his cigarettes every bit as much as many warned.

Thankfully, he’s got it covered. Sarri was pictured in the St. James’ Park technical area with a cigarette in his mouth.

At first we wondered if he was going to stick two fingers up to the British government and violate the smoking ban.

The former Napoli boss was in fact keeping just the end of a cigarette, the filter, between his lips, as if to recreate the feeling of smoking, without actually doing it. See for yourself!

If it works for you, Maurizio, there’ll be no complaints from us – especially if we keep winning!

I believe we should accept Sarri for who he is and not trying to change him.
