A court case that heard how two fans suffered “mental anguish” when Cristiano Ronaldo failed to play in a pre-season friendly for Juventus in South Korea last year has ended in both supporters being awarded financial compensation.

Event organisers ‘The Fasta’ had suggested Ronaldo was contracted to play at least 45 minutes in the glamour game against K League All Stars, leaving the sell-out crowd of 65,000 people, most of whom had paid around 71,000 won ($59) for a match ticket, disappointed.

Ronaldo took to the bench alongside his teammates as Juventus recovered from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 with their hosts, but the formidable striker made his only non-appearance of the club’s Asian tour with a muscle problem.

Lawyer Kim Min-ki, who filed the lawsuit and was reportedly also representing 87 other plaintiffs in further cases related to the friendly, won ticket refunds and 300,000 won ($252) for each of the two successful fans at a district court in Incheon.
