Another player accused of using juju is Romelu Lukaku, the Belgian international. In 2021, Zlatan Ibrahimovic accused Lukaku of using juju during a match between Inter Milan and AC Milan. Ibrahimovic made a jibe at Lukaku, saying, “Call all your mom, do your voodoo thing.” The comment was a reference to Lukaku’s move from Everton to Manchester United. According to reports, Lukaku allegedly refused to extend his contract with Everton after receiving a voodoo message that told him to join Chelsea.

These accusations have caused controversy in the football world, and have shed light on the use of witchcraft in the sport. This was even confirmed by Everton owner Farhad Moshiri who said:

“I can assure you we tried everything to keep Rom. If I tell you what we offered him you wouldn’t believe it. We offered him a better deal than Chelsea and his agent came to Finch Farm to sign the contract. Robert [Elstone, Everton’s chief executive] was there, everything was in place, there were a few reporters outside, then in the meeting Rom called his mother. He said he was on a pilgrimage in Africa or somewhere and he had a voodoo and he got the message that he needs to go to Chelsea.


Didier Drogba

Didier Drogba, a Chelsea football legend, has been accused of using juju to enhance his performance and injure other players during his time at Stamford Bridge. Fans of Drogba have widely speculated that he used witchcraft to improve his skills on the pitch.

Additionally, there is a belief that shirt number 9 at Chelsea is cursed since many world-class strikers, including Radamel Falcao, Álvaro Morata, Gonzalo Higuaín, and Romelu Lukaku, have failed to meet the expectations of fans while wearing it.

Yaya Toure

Another player who has been linked to juju is Yaya Toure, who had a difficult relationship with Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola. After being forced to leave Barcelona Guardiola in 2010, their strained relationship continued at Man City. Toure was eventually reduced to a bench player before deciding to retire from football.

There is also a belief among fans that Guardiola is under an “African Curse” that can only be lifted if he apologizes to Toure. Despite his success in the English Premier League, Guardiola has yet to win the UEFA Champions League, and fans speculate that this curse could be the reason for his inability to achieve this feat.
