Maurizio Sarri vowed to quit smoking after Chelsea’s 3-2 win against Arsenal – but only for ‘one or two years’.

Sarri guided Chelsea to a second straight win on Saturday, but not without the Blues throwing away a two-goal lead and scoring a late winner.

“I will smoke in the evening, not during the match,” the former Napoli boss told The Telegraph, which saw him clench a cigarette packet and chew on cigarette butts.

Maurizio Sarri vowed to quit smoking after Chelsea’s 3-2 win against Arsenal – but only for ‘one or two years’.

Sarri guided Chelsea to a second straight win on Saturday, but not without the Blues throwing away a two-goal lead and scoring a late winner.

“I will smoke in the evening, not during the match,” the former Napoli boss told The Telegraph, which saw him clench a cigarette packet and chew on cigarette butts.

“I am going to stop. Just for one or two years, then I will start again. We did very well for 75 minutes of the 90. Inside there were 15 horrible minutes.

“We lost distances, we were not able to press, we were not able to defend. We were really in trouble.

Asked if he needed a cigarette during half-time, the 59-year-old replied: “No, no, I just needed the first half to end! I needed half-time.

“I can speak about the other 75, I think that’s better. Because I remember the good things instead of the worst.

“So I think in the second half we did really well in the mental point of view because it was very hard to answer to the last part of the first half.”
