About famous names: Maniche

For everybody he's Maniche, but the pronunciation of this pseudonym is incorrect. Even the very Atlético Madrid footballer, currently playing on loan for Inter Milan, fed up of rectifying it, decided to go for it. Nuno Ricardo Oliveira Ribeiro, born in Lisbon, received his nickname after Benfica's 1980s legendary Danish forward Michael Manniche. And in Danish, the nickname should be pronounced.
