N*Korean Fans to Sue After CR7 No Show in Juventus Friendly


Cristiano Ronaldo's failure to get on the field during a recent Juventus friendly has caused football supporters in South Korea to take legal action against the match organisers.

The superstar forward stayed on the bench for the whole 90 minutes during Juve's 3-3 draw with the K-League All Stars team at Seoul World Cup Stadium last week.

Fans who attended the game are said to have suffered "mental anguish" by Ronaldo's non-appearance, after organiser The Fasta Inc alleged the 34-year-old was contractually obligated to play in the match.

Korean lawyer Kim Min-ki, who is spearheading the lawsuit against the match organisers, says he will be pursuing a €53 (£48/$59) match ticket refund and €759 (£697/$847) compensation for each customer's "painful" situation.

"Many purchased tickets to see Ronaldo. The Fasta publicised that the company had a deal with Juventus which stipulated Ronaldo would play for at least 45 minutes and that Ronaldo would hold a fan signing event," Kim told Reuters.
