LONDON — Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is trying to give up smoking.

The 59-year-old Sarri says "unfortunately at the moment I am not able to stop."

The Italian's father has been urging him to give up cigarettes for 20 years but it's proving difficult.

Sarri says he could try to stop smoking for "one, two years ... no more. Then I'd like to start again."

The former Napoli coach has won all four Premier League matches since being hired by Chelsea.
