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."

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.
