How many cigarettes has Maurizio Sarri smoked since he last lost a league game?

He has spent a quarter of his adult life with a cigarette in-hand

£18,000 a year. The new minimum wage? Wayne Rooney's Belgravia hair clinic bill?

None of the above. It is in fact the amount of money Maurizio Sarri coughs up on fags every year.

Famous for his nicotine obsession, the new Chelsea boss puffs through 80-a-day.

How many cigarettes has Maurizio Sarri smoked since he last lost a league game?
What are you doing??

Let's break the numbers down more clearly.

It's fair to assume the Blues manager is awake for 16 hours a day, so that is a cigarette every 12 waking minutes.

Considering it takes around three minutes to smoke one, Sarri has spent a quarter of his adult life with a smoke on.

A pack of cigarettes is £11.50, meaning the hoarse-voiced Neapolitan smokes £46.00 of his hard-earned pounds every day and £1,400 every month.

Let's put his unhealthy addiction into some more context.

The architect of 'Sarri ball' suffered his last league defeat on April 29th.

That was 150 days ago, so in that time the Italian has got through a staggering 13900 ciggies.

If Sarri has been smoking that number since his 18th birthday, then he has cleared the one million mark.

British laws surrounding smoking in confined public spaces have left the 59-year-old chewing on un-used cigarette filters instead.

It has been rumoured that Chelsea have added a smoking room to Stamford Bridge so the Blues boss can sneak off at half time.

Sarri is not the only manager with an affinity with the cigarettes.

Fellow countrymen Gianluca Vialli, Walter Mazzarri and Carlo Ancelotti were also partial to a puff on the touchline.

Even the angelic Arsene Wenger was prone to the occasional smoke.

Hey, whatever works for you Maurizio!
