Football fans plan to sue Italian soccer club Juventus. The club had a contract to play Cristiano Ronaldo for 45 minutes in a game against a K League team, but he did not play. Fans want money. They sang the name of Ronaldo's rival Lionel Messi at the game. One fan wrote: "I'm no longer a Ronaldo fan."

The angry fans saw a lawyer in Seoul. They want $850 each for the stress of Ronaldo's no-show. A lawyer said this was "a special case". He said Juventus used "false advertising" to get Ronaldo's fans to buy tickets. He added: "Some of the fans are very passionate. They are real fans....It is very painful because they love Ronaldo."
