The unusual problem of Chelsea players: Nobody wants her, she is simply cursed!

Romelu Lukaku, who was brought in by the London team last August for one hundred million pounds as the most expensive reinforcement in the club’s history, was the last player with the nine in Chelsea. However, after a lackluster season, the Belgian striker returned to Inter Milan.

However, the curse of the number nine has also affected other attacking stars at Chelsea in the past. Hernán Crespo, Fernando Torres, Radamel Falcao, Gonzalo Higuaín or Álvaro Morata did not make their mark at Stamford Bridge.

“Everyone tells me that the number is cursed. It’s not like we missed it for other reasons,” Tuchel responded when asked if the club is saving the number nine for the arrival of offensive reinforcements. There is speculation about the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona.

“No one simply wants to take that number. People who have been at the club for a long time tell me: That’s the way it is. So-and-so played with number nine and stopped scoring goals,” added the German coach. “So nobody wants that number and I understand that because I’m superstitious too,” he added.
