That Deportivo Wanka shirt in fullPeruvian football team Deportivo Wanka has been giving Manchester United a run for its money in the replica kit market, although the Huancayo-based outfit has no idea why more than 1,000 British footie fans might want to sport a Deportivo Wanka shirt.

The team is, according to UK tabloid The Sun, named after the Wanka tribe which once occupied Huancayo. A spokeswanka said: "It is very strange. Everyone in Britain seems to think we have a funny name." The team's ignorance of the true meaning of its delicious moniker was confirmed by Subside Sports, which punts the kit online. "The club just doesn’t get the joke," the e-commerce operation admitted.

The Deportivo Wanka shirt is currently sold out, although hard-core Wankas can pre-order now for March delivery. ®
