Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has revealed that he was put to test during Chelsea’s thrilling 3:2 win over Arsenal in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
The Blues manager was in possession of a box of cigarettes as he chewed on butts whilst watching his Chelsea side relinquish a 2 nil lead against Arsenal at halftime
Marcos Alonso popped up in the second half of the game to score the eventual winner of the game to put Chelsea minds at rest.
“I will smoke in the evening, not during the match,” said Sarri.

“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.”
Sarri resisted the urge to smoke at the interval after a nerve-wracking end to the first half of the game where Arsenal scored twice in four minutes.
“I just needed the first half to end!” he said. “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.
“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.”
