Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri pulls out a cigar he celebrates Europa League final victory

Maurizio Sarri has not had the easiest of seasons at Chelsea but the Italian manager looked in high spirits as he celebrated his side’s victory over Arsenal in Wednesday’s Europa League final.

The Blues came to life after a tight first half in Baku, a brace from Eden Hazard and goals from Olivier Giroud and Pedro sealing an emphatic victory over their London rivals.

And Sarri was having plenty of fun following the full-time whistle, even jokingly pulling out a cigar amid the celebrations.

Resembling a naughty child for a moment, Sarri, who is known for smoking cigarettes on the touchline, sneakily showed the cigar to Ross Barkley as his team celebrated on the pitch after lifting the trophy.

Barkley and the surrounding players who caught a glimpse found it highly amusing before Sarri chuckled and tucked the cigar back in his pocket.

The Blues boss was later seen lighting up a cigarette on the substitutes bench, perhaps saving the cigar for later on in the night.

Wednesday’s victory saw the Italian claim the first major trophy of his career in what could still prove to be his final game in charge of Chelsea amid interest from Juventus.
