Napoli head to Leipzig on Thursday to play the second leg of their last 16 tie in the Europa League and some unusual construction work is going on at the German club to make it a more comfortable experience for Italian manager, Maurizio Sarri.
Smoking section in Napoli changing room
It is known that Sarri has an addiction to tobacco and for that reason a special room is being created for the visiting manager, which will allow him to smoke privately before and after the game at the Red Bull Arena. According to German paper Bild, the wall that is being put up is 3.5 metres high by 3.0 meters wide.

The Italian club have also reportedly made a request for all of the smoke detectors in the area to be turned off for the duration of his visit.
Napoli, currently Serie A league leaders, are needing an impressive comeback against the Germans following their 1-3 defeat at home last week.
