Wayne Rooney faces an anxious wait before hearing if Uefa will take any action against him following his alleged stamp on Aalborg’s Kasper Risgard in last night’s Champions League tie.
Uefa have confirmed that they are to study video evidence of the incident.
The Danish player accused Rooney of ‘jumping at my chest’ and leaving ‘big marks’ on his body during the 2 v 2 draw at Old Trafford.
The referee took no action against Rooney at the time bur Uefa has the power to take retrospective action which could see the England striker banned from one or more of United’s knock out matches.
A Uefa spokesperson said:
We are aware of the incident and the disciplinary panel will study the footage and newspaper reports before deciding whether to take action.
