Over 2,000 fans want after Ronaldo failed to play in a pre-season against an all-star K League team. Juventus signed a to play Ronaldo for 45 minutes of the game, but he stayed on the subs and did not even lace up his soccer boots. Many fans at the game switched from chanting Ronaldo's name to chanting the name of his great Lionel Messi. There were also around the stadium. The fans have also been voicing their at Ronaldo on social media. One wrote: "He betrayed the 60,000 audience and belittled us. I'm no a Ronaldo fan."
The fans are now seeking compensation. They have gone to a firm in South Korea's capital city, Seoul. They want Juventus to return their $60 ticket and pay compensation of $850 to each fan for the " anguish" they suffered because of Ronaldo's no-show. A lawyer told the Reuters news that normally in such cases, fans would get their money back for their tickets, but this was "a case since the company, through advertising, took of the football star's fans". The lawyer added: "As for the mental anguish part, I'd like to say some of the fans are very passionate. They are real, avid fans, so for it is very because they love Ronaldo."
