Nicknames in English football tend to be incredibly dour, with the majority consisting of the addition of a 'y' at the end of a first or last name i.e. Crouchy, Milly, Ronny, Scholesy, you get the picture.
Yet across the water in China, football fans have an altogether more interesting way of naming the most famous footballers.
The nicknames are usually born of necessity, with some player's titles difficult to pronounce/write in China, so supporters christen players a name that is more manageable to deal with. The results are some very questionable and funny epithets.
Wayne Rooney - Little Fatty
Cruel? Yes. Fitting? Also yes.
Carlos Tevez - Very Homesick Boy
Perhaps the most fitting nickname on the list, a moniker that has been earned in both England and China.
Mesut Ozil - Little Wife
Apparently because of his timid nature. Not very PC though.
Paul Pogba - Busty
I don't know how exactly this one works, I always thought Pogba was lacking in the chest department.
Jose Mourinho - Magic Bird
I'd say the magic has been wearing thin of late.
Kylian Mbappe - Little Puppy
Neymar christened his team mate Donatello, much to the France star's chagrin, but this nickname is a lot more affectionate.
Paulinho - Violent Bird
The spin off sequel to Angry Birds.
Gareth Bale - Mahatma
Mahatma is Sanskrit for “great soul”, though it is also the nickname for the fictional monkey king Sun Wukong, so it's hard to work out if the name is an insult or compliment.
Roger Federer is known as 'cow' in China due to his laid back demeanour and Jennifer Lopez has been fantastically christened as 'Lord of Butt'.
Here are a list of some of the best other Chinese nicknames for celebs:
Benedict Cumberbatch - Curly Fortune
Nicki Minaj - Numbing-Spicy Chicken
Katy Perry - Fruit Sister
Sam Smith - Flirty Woman
