Drake: ‘Curse’ may havewrecked Liverpool’s title hopes and affected Sergio Aguero, Romelu Lukaku and Conor McGregor
Sergio Aguero has become the latest sporting superstar to fall victim to the Drake ‘curse’.
The Argentina international missed a penalty when the game goalless as Manchester City lost 1-0 to Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday night.
While the Citizens have a second leg to rescue their Champions League dreams, fans have begun to notice how Drake appears to have a genuine impact on the celebrities he meets.
Aguero met the star on March 10 and his abject performance at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium could surely just be put down to coincidence.
But this happened when the Canadian rapper was the designated hype man for Conor McGregor before UFC 229. The Irishman, though, was completely outclassed and beaten by Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Before facing Wolves, Romelu Lukaku met the ‘God’s Plan’ singer last month and Manchester United also subsequently lost that game.
Jadon Sancho has also fallen victim to the ‘curse’ as he was unable to help Borussia Dortmund in ‘Der Klassiker’ as Bayern Munich thrashed them 5-0.

Back in 2014, Drake posed for a picture with Daniel Sturridge. That season saw the Reds famously collapse in the race for the Premier League title.
With the Reds going strong for the crown this campaign, fans will be hoping none of their players pay a visit to any of Drake’s ‘Assassination Vacation’ European tour dates before May 12.
Anthony Joshua joked about ‘breaking the curse’ when he met u with the 32-year-old ahead of his world title fight against Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller.
