We all have heard of fans having different superstitions before and during games, but it should be no surprise to know that players, managers and owners also have their own rituals before games.After all, the stakes are much higher for them than they are for the fans. But a few of these rituals border on the ridiculous, and here are 10 of them that are downright weird

#1 Laurent Blanc

During the 1998 World Cup, France’s Laurent Blanc would go up to goalkeeper Fabian Barthez before every match and kiss his bald head for good luck. As bizarre as the ritual was, it seems to have worked considering the end result was a World Cup win for his country.

They were, of course, not the only ones in the team indulging in such rituals, with the entire team doing some superstitious thing or the other!
