Quiz! Can you identify these 40 European clubs by their unusual nicknames?

From Monkey Hangers to Flying Donkeys, it’s the amazing world of club nicknames. How many do you know?

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

European football returns this week, and with it comes some delightful continental quirks.

And none more so than European clubs' unusual nicknames. English teams will be taking on the "Sons of Gods" and the "Moody Diva" in the coming days – and we're not sure which should be the bigger worry.

How many, though, do you recognise?

For some of these clubs, the below are in addition to a more formal moniker. Others proudly boast their unusual animal or foodstuff as a main handle. But each is an actual in-use nickname, and not something we’ve made up. Honest.

Now, each club’s nickname is below along with their country and 10 minutes on the clock. Let us know how you do @FourFourTwo – we’ll retweet the best efforts – and challenge some pals as well. If you fancy more of the same, try our player nickname quiz too. Good luck!
