Drake is wildly successful in his music career, but at some point in his life he was embodied by an evil spirit who despised sports in all forms. This spirit is embodied by a curse which causes any player that Drake is photographed with to lose embarrassingly or dramatically in their next match. The Drake curse has gotten so bad that professional European clubs are having to take extreme measures:
All Roma players banned from taking photos with Drake until the end of the season

The curse doesn’t stop with football, both MMA and Boxing have also be blighted by the curse. Here are 10 examples of the Drake curse in action:
Someone at City clearly forgot to inform Aguero of the Drake curse, and to their own detriment. After taking this pic with Drake, City went on to lose to Tottenham in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final, after Sergio Aguero’s penalty was saved. Really, he should have known better!

The pair posed for a picture at London’s O2 Arena during Drake’s run of shows there, but later that week Aubameyang’s Arsenal side put on a poor performance and lost 1-0 to Everton, dropping out of the crucial top four spots!
6. Jadon Sancho
After meeting Drake backstage in Manchester, Sancho posted the above image on his Instagram account. Next thing you know, Dortmund lose 5-0 to Bayern Munich.
