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.
