(Reuters) - Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli on Wednesday rejected allegations that the Italian champions acted irresponsibly after Cristiano Ronaldo did not feature in a pre-season friendly against the K League All Stars in Seoul last week.

Ronaldo was contracted to play at least 45 minutes according to event organisers but sat out the game due to 'muscle fatigue', leading irate fans to pursue legal action to seek compensation for the cost of tickets and "mental anguish".
