Layvin Kurzawa became the latest victim of the ‘Drake Curse’ following Paris Saint-Germain’s shock…
Roma have hilariously banned all of their players from having their pictures taken with pop star Drake… because he’s believed to be 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.

Paul Pogba saw Drake perform at the Manchester Arena and got a picture taken with him – not long before Manchester United lost 2-1 to Wolves in the FA Cup.
It was a similar story for Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who was at one of Drake’s seven shows at the O2 in London.
After losing 1-0 to Everton the following weekend, plenty of Gooners will probably be wishing he’d never posed for a picture.
Sergio Aguero is the third Premier League player people think Drake has cursed in recent weeks.
He missed a penalty in the Champions League as Man City lost 1-0 to Tottenham earlier this month, not long after he’d been photographed with Drake at a show.
And could the rapper also be to blame for Borussia Dortmund losing 5-0 to Bayern Munich, after hanging out with their English rising star Jadon Sancho? At this point, why not?
The Drake Curse has become a bit of a social media phenomenon in recent years.
In a way, it kicked off with Drake’s beloved NBA team the Toronto Raptors. He became a global ambassador for the club in 2013, and can be seen cheering them on from the sidelines whenever they’ve got a big game.
Unfortunately though, the last six years have seen the Raptors develop a bit of a reputation for choking in those big games.
