Arsenal fans are terrified of the ‘Drake Curse’.
The hip-hop megastar enjoyed some time with Gunners striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, in a picture posted on Twitter.
However, fans have now been left worried about the club’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.
Indeed, Drake has a number of teams in American sports that he supports but the saying goes that any team that the rapper professes affection for ends up choking on the biggest stage.
The likes of the Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors have both lost after Drake’s endorsement, along with Serena Williams, perhaps the greatest female tennis player of all time, and Connor McGregor, the UFC star who was beaten by Khabib Nurmogomedov with Drake in attendance.
Perhaps the worst case of all is the Kentucky Wildcats, one of college basketball’s most storied teams. Drake designed specially engraved rings for them after their championship win in 2012, and they have not won the title since. He even gave a rousing speech to the team after their Final Four (semi-final) victory in 2014, from which they lost as heavy favourites in the final.
Gunners fans are now concerned about the final seven games of the season, with the club currently third in the Premier League and well-placed to qualify for Europe’s elite club competition.
Take a look at the best of the reaction on Twitter below!
