RB Leipzig build Sarri smoking room

RB Leipzig have reportedly erected a special wall to create a smoking section in their locker room for Napoli Coach Maurizio Sarri.

The first leg of their Europa League tie ended 3-1 for the Germans at the Stadio San Paolo and they meet again at the Red Bull Arena on Thursday evening.

According to pictures published in Bild, the host club have added a wall – 3m wide, 3.5m high – in the locker room to create a smoking section.

At the request of Napoli, all the smoke detectors in the locker rooms have also been switched off.

“Sarri is a passionate smoker, that's really incredible. I have never seen anyone who smokes so much. Thank God he has to hold back during games!” said captain Marek Hamsik recently.
