Rigano: Levante not bottom of Liga because I smoke!

Christian Rigano is upset with claims that Levante are struggling this season because he is a smoker!

The Italian striker, along with goalkeeper Marco Storari, have courted controversy with their admission that they smoke, but Rigano insists: "In Italy, as in Europe, I don't think it's a problem if a player smokes one of two cigarettes after eating.

"If I smoked a pack a day, then that would be a problem. But not two cigarettes.

"In any case, I don't believe Levante are bottom of the table because I smoke."
