Maurizio Sarri rolled out of bed on Tuesday morning, then rolled his first cigarette of the day. Then he rolled his second and third, before lighting the first one. That’s standard practice, ensuring that, providing he keeps a steady pace, rolling one while smoking one, he’ll always have a buffer of two rollies, just in case he’s forced to break away momentarily to work on some other project, such as deciding which set of scrubs to wear for the match, or which minute he plans to replace Pedro with Anyone But Callum Hudson-Odoi. Then he slapped a few Nicorette patches on to his arms, popped a strip of NRT gum in his mouth, slipped a pouch of dip under each eyelid, and he was up and running for the day.
