Man Utd star Wayne Rooney could find himself in trouble with Uefa for his lunge on Kasper Risgard in Wednesday night's UEFA Champions League clash with Aalborg.

Rooney, who scored United's equaliser in the 2-2 draw at Old Trafford, also gained some unwanted attention for a second-half tackle that floored Michael Jakobsen.

The England star could find himself in hot water for the incident before the break involving Risgard.

If Uefa decide to punish Rooney over the clash he could be handed a ban or fine.

Risgard revealed Rooney apologised to him for the tackle and he felt he striker was lucky to escape a red card.
Big marks

"I do not think the referee saw it. Anywhere else but this place it would have been a red card," said Risgard.

"I have some big marks and I do not think it looks good on television.

"There was also another incident with Rooney where he threw an arm and hurt one of our players.

"But these challenges happen in football and he did come and apologise to me after the game."

I think Rooney gets away with murder. How he has only been sent off once is madness. Same goes for John Terry, I think the big England players get special compensation from referees. anyone else notice this?

Ye I seen it, Terry gets away with a lot. Same goes for Rooney. I believe that foreign players would be punished more if they did the same.

Uefa will study video evidence before taking any action against Wayne Rooney for his controversial challenge on Aalborg's Kasper Risgard.

The incident occurred during Manchester United's UEFA Champions League clash with the Danish outfit on Wednesday.

Risgard accused Rooney of 'jumping at my chest' and leaving 'big marks' on his body during the 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.

Match officials took no action against the England international striker on the night, but the matter has now been passed on to European football's governing body.

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."

Any retrospective action could see Rooney ruled out of crunch encounters in the knockout stages of the competition.

I am not too interested in what other players from other clubs do that go undetected.

Don't want to come across as a Rooney basher but just speaking facts: Rooney does have this undesirable and impulsive habit of committing this sort of subtle offences especially when he is frustrated and the referee is not looking.

Any censure meted out for such brainless antics is really unnecessary, stupid and detrimental to our ambitions. He surely can't be unaware of this invention called video camera?

UEFA have confirmed they will be reviewing video footage of the incident.

I'm still hopeful that Rooney will mellow out as he gets older but it is frustrating that he keeps picking up needless suspensions for silly fouls.

Didn't see it so can't comment.

However, Rooney does have the tendency to lose his head and it happens far too often imo. We were sitting here a couple of years ago saying that Rooney had calmed down a lot, but this last 6 months - 1 year he looks like hes gone backwards in this aspect.

I'm not Rooney bashing, as I do like Rooney. I'm just saying it as it is imo.

Trouble is he didn't get booked so UEFA can re-visit the video.. If ref takes action at the time the UEFA can't do nowt..
Although he deserves to be punished as it was pretty bad what he did, I don't see this as trouble, i see this as a good thing. He probably should get in trouble but for Uniteds sake i'd rather he didn't.

What the hell? He was taken down and lost his footing. If you slide into a tackle like whatever-the-hell that guys name is that get stepped on, you are gonna get a knock most of the times. The other time, if the ref doesnt let the player run down Rooney's calf, he doesn't push the guy off him.
