There are nicknames that as well as serving as a pseudonym, go further and reflect a philosophy and understanding of the sport and of competition. The supporters and players of CD Mirandés, a la Liga Adelante team, are known by the popular nickname of 'jabatos'.
The explanation can be found in the area where Miranda de Ebro is situated. A native animal and one of the symbols of the place is the large population of wild boars that inhabit the area; their offspring are called 'jabatos'.
On top of this, the CD Mirandés players are given this nickname because of the energetic character and fighting spirit of these animals, a way to point out how the footballers who wear the team colours should behave on the field of play.
