Football fans in South Korea are taking legal action to seek compensation after Cristiano Ronaldo didn't play a part during Juventus’ pre-season tour in Seoul last week.

According to event organizers, The Fasta Inc, Ronaldo had been contracted to play at least 45 minutes against K League All-Stars but ultimately sat out the entire game at a packed Seoul World Cup Stadium.

Now, an online community has been formed on South Korea's Naver web portal to protest about Ronaldo's lack of participation, and two members reached out to lawyer Kim Min-ki to file a lawsuit against the match organisers.

'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.
