Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas talks about kissing his ring before games
Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has revealed he likes to kiss his ring before matches.
Despite claiming he is not superstitious, the former Arsenal captain says he always kisses the piece of jewellery given to him by his wife ahead of games for good luck.
The 27-year-old plants four kisses on the ring before putting it in his locker and heading out onto the pitch.
He said: “I’m not superstitious at all but there is one thing that I started doing four years ago – it went well and I didn’t stop doing it.
“I kiss this ring that my wife gave me four times – my lucky number – and then I leave it in my locker and I go out.”
Sounds pretty superstitious to us!
Team-mate Thibaut Courtois described a less impressive post-kicking ritual to help him focus on the game.
