Roma Players Banned From Taking Photos With Drake Until End Of Season
Paris Saint-Germain defender Layvin Kurzawa posted a selfie with Drake ahead of their Ligue 1 game against Lille at the weekend. PSG only needed a draw to win the title and many thought it was inevitable.
Two days later, Thomas Tuchel’s side suffered their biggest league defeat in 19 years, conceding an incredible five goals in one of biggest shocks of the season.
Maybe somebody should have explained to Kurzawa that there’s a certain ‘curse’ knocking around in connection to the Canadian rapper.
Let me explain. Basically whenever the Canadian musician bumps into someone involved in sport, a series of unfortunate events happens to that person or team.
From the Kentucky Basketball team, who haven’t won a title since 2012, to the Toronto Raptors, who haven’t reached a final in years – there are plenty of examples of this happening and this weekend was no different.
The latest incident is just one of the many examples of the ‘Drake curse’ happening in world football, and now Serie A side AS Roma have taken action.
“All Roma players banned from taking photos with Drake until the end of the season.” they posted on Twitter.
In the same week Drake posed for pictures with Arsenal striker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang during his concert in London, the Gabon international couldn’t find the net as Unai Emery’s side suffered a 1-0 defeat against Everton.
You want more examples of ‘The Drake Curse’? Okay, here we go…
Drake walked out with Conor McGregor for his UFC 229 fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov, and that ended with the Irishman submitting.
Some college football fans blamed the 32-year old as a bad luck charm for Alabama losing to Clemson in January after Drake sported an Alabama hoodie in the build-up.
He has also been cited as the main factor in shock defeats for the Golden State Warriors and Serena Williams.
What next in this incredible series of events?
