Lazio use cigarette emoji to announce Sarri as new coach

Lazio have announced Maurizio Sarri as their new head coach with the former Juventus and Chelsea boss returning to management after a year absence.

Sarri, who led Juventus to the Serie A title in the 2019/20 season has joined the Italian club on a two-year contract.

Lazio, took to twitter on Wednesday morning to announce Sarri’s arrival and used a cryptic tweet, a cigarette emoji.

They also tweeted a picture of a tracksuit and a bank to confirm the 62-year-old former banker who is popular for smoking on the touchline is joining them.

Sarri was the head coach at Napoli for three years, before he left to join Chelsea in July 2018.

He returned to Italy to manage Juventus after winning the Europa League in 2019, but the Old Ladies sacked him after one season.
