[Cristiano Ronaldo no-show leaves K League fuming at Juventus ‘shamelessness, untruth and deception’] K League cannot help but feel disappointed and cheated by Juventus for its shamelessness. Juventus said in its reply that Ronaldo’s absence was due to muscle fatigue from previous matches that had forced him to take a rest.

Yet, Juventus has so far avoided responsibility for Ronaldo’s no-show without any explanations. Other assertions from Juventus are also filled with untruth and deception.
