Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri has claimed that he will quit smoking in order to stop being asked about the habit.

The former Chelsea boss is currently on a 60-a-day habit and was asked about it during the Serie A champions' pre-season tour of China.

According to the Mail Online, Sarri grew agitated when asked about smoking and stated: "Here you are more tolerant so I feel more comfortable, but just to make him [the journalist] happy I can say I smoked even in Singapore."

When asked if he had tried Chinese cigarettes whilst on the tour, Sarri finally affirmed: "Let’s say I am quitting smoking. I am quitting. Enough!"


Sarri, who was unable to smoke on the touchline at Chelsea due to regulations, saw his side beaten 3-2 by Tottenham in their first match in China, thanks to a Harry Kane winner from the halfway line.


However, Juventus bounced back on Wednesday, drawing 1-1 with Inter before penalties gave them the win. Matthijs de Ligt had scored an own goal before Cristiano Ronaldo's deflected free kick squared things up.
