Maurizio Sarri’s ball superstition revealed

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has a strange ritual during every game. Jorginho revealed his manager’s bizarre superstition on match days. In an interview for Chelsea’s official YouTube channel, he admitted that the specialist did not touch the ball during a match.

‘The way he seems, that’s how he is. He has no secrets, he’s a simple guy.

‘He has his… beliefs, his superstitions, as everyone has. For example, he won’t touch the match ball ever. Even if we’re losing, the ball goes out and we need to get the ball back in play as fast as possible, he won’t go near it, no way, he won’t touch it’ , said Jorginho.

‘Then there are other things too, but that’s normal no?’, midfielder added.
