Juventus’s Sarri at risk of contracting Coronavirus as he smokes 60-cigarettes-a-day


Juventus’s Sarri at risk of contracting Coronavirus as he smokes 60-cigarettes-a-day. Two Juventus players — Blaise Matuidi and Daniele Rugani — have tested positive for COVID-19 over the past two weeks, which has resulted in 121 players, staff and officials of the club going into self-isolation this week.

Italian giants Juventus are currently putting manager Maurizio Sarri, who smokes up to 60 cigarettes a day, under a special protection regime as the coronavirus break continues to create havoc at the Serie A club.

While Sarri has tested negative for the virus after players, and officials from the Serie A club took a second round of swab tests this week, the former Chelsea manager’s health is under serious risk due to him being a regular smoker.

This means that the Italian is more exposed to serious health risks as those with lung problems, alongside other long-lasting health issues, could face greater difficulty in healing.

Sarri is known to smoke up to 60 cigarettes a day and also suffered from pneumonia at the start of the 2019-20 season. This illness, which left him very scared about his health, prevented him from managing the club from the touchline last August and during the first half of September.

With the help of the Juventus medical staff, he was able to make a full recovery and continues to receive special advice from the same set of people about steering clear of any serious coronavirus-related health issues.

Close friend Aurelio Virgili, who has known him for more than 20 years and worked with him while Sarri was a banker in Arezzo, revealed he has been in contact with the Juventus manager over the past few days. He told Tuttosport: ‘‘I spoke to him three days ago. He’s in a positive mood.

‘‘He misses daily life and being in the training ground — it’s in his blood. But, as is the situation for everyone, he’s concentrating on the type of work you can do at home. ‘‘He’s watching matches, training sessions and is studying player data. He’s like a machine.

‘‘For example, if you asked him how many kilometres Ghimmi (Juan Cuadrado) registered against Inter Milan, he would tell you how many kilometres he ran forward, backwards, left and right.’’

Virgili also explained how Sarri, who is isolating in Turin, is not on his own and is even in long-distance contact with Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

‘‘With him is Enirco, a long-term friend from Figline, who has been close to him for all of his life. And obviously, there’s his dog, Ciro. ‘‘Maurizio watches a lot of football, but other than that he’s a man of great culture and reads a lot. ‘‘He’s also been joking with Guardiola about the transfer market rumours.’’
