Flamengo taunt Real Madrid over amazing shirt sale figures

Flamengo have taunted Real Madrid with their amazing shirt sale figures.

"According to the most recent figures available we have sold 435,000 shirts in a little less than 60 days. That's one every 13.5 seconds

"By way of example, Real Madrid, since buying Kaka (in June) and (Cristiano) Ronaldo (in July) have sold a shirt every 16 seconds," Flamengo chief Ricardo Hinrichsen claimed on the Globoesporte website.

Flamengo, whose squad includes veteran striker Adriano, who quit Inter Milan citing personal problems last season, is Brazil's most popular club.
