Roma Ban All Players From Taking Photos With Drake Until End Of Season

Roma have hilariously banned their players from posing with pop star Drake… because he is a “curse” to football teams.

The Canadian singer has gained a reputation for being a bad luck charm after posing with players or wearing team shirts.

He struck again on Sunday when PSG suffered their heaviest defeat in 19 years with a shock 5-1 loss to Lille.

Earlier in the week he had posed for a picture with defender Layvin Kurzawa.

Arsenal and Manchester City recently succumbed to the curse when their stars were pictured alongside the artist.

The Gunners had their top four hopes dashed when they crashed to a 1-0 defeat at Everton after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang shared a snap with the singer.

And City’s Sergio Aguero saw his penalty saved by Hugo Lloris in the 1-0 Champions League loss to Tottenham not long after taking a selfie following his Manchester concert.

So with Champions League qualification on the line, it is no surprise Roma are taking drastic measures.

They comically wrote on Twitter: “All Roma players banned from taking photos with Drake until the end of the season.”

Other examples include Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho having a picture with him before their 5-0 defeat at Bayern Munich and Paul Pogba before Man United’s FA Cup loss against Wolves.

Drake also has history with Juventus.

Another added: “This admin does not stop to amaze you.”
