10 Football Clubs With Weird Nicknames

1) Atletico Madrid- Los Colchoneros ( The Mattress Makers)

Atletico Madrid gets its nickname Los Colchoneros from their decision to snub their blue and white colour design to adopt a uniform design of red and white. Post the Spanish Civil war back in ’40, mattresses were made for a low price using the red and white design because of their scarcity. The club snubbed their former design for the new mattresses design hence getting their nickname. The club have grown exponentially in recent years under Diego Simeone’s guidance. However, they could well be in a state of turmoil if the reports are to be believed that Simeone would end his glorious time at Calderon at the end of the season.
