Eden Hazard puffs on huge cigar as Sarri and Chelsea backroom staff celebrate Europa League triumph with a fag


CHELSEA star Eden Hazard was pictured smoking a huge cigar during the team’s Europa League triumph celebrations.

Maurizio Sarri and the coach’s staff also enjoyed a smoke following their 4-1 win over Arsenal in Baku.

Hazard toasted to his success with the Portuguese coach
Sarri arrived with a reputation for lighting a fag during matches

In footage posted online by former goalkeeper Hilario, Chelsea players are seen dancing and drinking the night away.

One picture sees Hazard posing with a large cigar while the ex-keeper drinks from a beer bottle.

In another, Sarri is joined by the likes of Gianfranco Zola in smoking while in their suits.

The group obviously enjoyed a raucous night out with a video of Willian playing the drums while Pedro dances away also going online.

Hilario even posts a snap of himself holding the trophy with his middle finger up to the camera.

Hilario captioned the post “about last night”

The goalkeeper was often third-choice during an eight-year spell at Stamford Bridge before being signed up to the backroom team by Antonio Conte in 2016.

Chelsea boss Sarri has a reputation for smoking but has opted against doing so on the touchline in England.

Cigarettes are generally more tolerated in many other country’s football leagues, including Italy’s Serie A.

And a group of Italian journalists even pitched in and gifted Sarri a pack of fags as a reward for beating the Gunners.


Goals from Hazard, Olivier Giroud and Pedro sealed a memorable win for the Blues in Baku.

They had already qualified for next season’s Champions League but this guarantees their spot on Pot One of the group stage draw.

But the season is not over for many of the Chelsea players, with an international spell coming up in June.
