Were the fans duped?

The fans must have been angry after their appeals to have Cristiano Ronaldo play during a friendly in Seoul, fell on deaf years. About 2,000 of these fans now want to sue a sports agency. It would have been better if they were in the know, from the beginning but probably it would still have been a sell-out crowd.

It's interesting, isn't it? Ronaldo was contracted to play for a minimum of 45 minutes against the K League All-Stars during Juventus' preseason tour. I don't think fans can ever expect certain players to play regardless of what's been touted around. Still, I know that's how they sell these preseason tickets. They talk up all the big stars that will be playing. I can imagine being angry if I bought a ticket expecting to see a favourite player. Additionally, they are also irate that Ronaldo was supposed to sign autographs during a fan event and he failed to do that too. I can see how that was the straw that broke the camel's back. What do you think the outcome will be?

I don't understand why the contract wasn't fulfilled. Does anyone know about that? I thought he signed to play for at least 45 minutes. Was the reason ever given for why Ronaldo noped out?

Well, as far as I know, the club has neither spoken about this issue nor commented on it. I would fault the organizers if they lied to the fans that Juventus’ star player was going to play. Refunding the fans will depend on how far this suit goes.
