Super Eagles striker, Brown Ideye has confirmed rumours that footballers use juju (African magic) to succeed professionally. According to the former West Bromwich Albion striker, footballers pay thousands of pounds to witch doctors to improve their performances. Ideye also said that majority of them pay more money for rituals to stop career-threatening injuries. According to reports in The Sun, some of the rituals, include the £460-a-time Troupkéka Milika. Benin-based marabout, Degla explained that “During its nine days you cannot sleep with a woman and you should cover yourself with a white loincloth while you sleep at night.” Also on offer to players is “a magic ring that allows you to dominate playing partners and opponents during every competition you take part in.” This revelation could give credence to Emmanuel Adebayor’s claim that his mother had used blackmagic to destroy his goal-scoring form for his club, Tottenham FC.
