Rooney cleared over Aalborg incident
Monday 15 December 2008
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will not face any disciplinary action over an apparent stamp on Aalborg's Kasper Risgard last week.
European governing body Uefa decided not to charge Rooney after studying video evidence of the incident in the clubs' 2-2 Champions League draw on Wednesday.
Aalborg midfielder Risgard claimed Rooney should have been sent off after "jumping" on his chest and leaving marks on his body.
Rooney could have faced a suspension for part of the knockout stages had Uefa decided to take action.
A spokesman said: "Uefa will not open any disciplinary proceedings against Wayne Rooney."
