Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny must have thought injury concerns would be behind him after leaving Arsenal for the season.
But no, the curse has followed him to Italy as he discovered he will be out of action for around four to six weeks.
The Gunners are known for suffering severe injuries with many stars missing large portions of seasons through injury.

Last season saw Olivier Giroud, Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil and Danny Welbeck face spells on the sideline and of course Abou Diaby missed everything.
No-one knows exactly what goes on at Arsenal during mid-week training, but they certainly have an injury curse, and sadly for Szczesny, it's followed him to Italy.
The Pole left North London on a season-long loan deal after the arrival of Petr Cech and after starting life in Italy, it looked like the loan move was going to be beneficial for Szczesny.
Injured Last Night
However, during last night's 1-1 draw with FC Barcelona, the goalkeeper injured his finger during a collision with former-Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.
After complaining about a pain in his hand, the club doctor sent him to get checks and results came back this morning confirming that he had dislocated his finger.
As of yet, Roma aren't 100 percent about the severity of his injury, but initial reports state it could be around four to six weeks.
If Szczesny is sidelined for that long, it's likely he will miss the next two Champions League matches, as well as two league games.
This means the on-loan star could miss games against Bayer Leverkusen and BATE in Europe while also missing out against Palermo and Sampdoria in Serie A.
The Arsenal curse follows Szczesny.
