Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will not face any disciplinary action over his apparent stamp on Aalborg's Kasper Risgard during a Champions League clash at Old Trafford last week.
Risgard claimed in his post-match comments that the United striker had left "big marks" on his chest but UEFA decided not to charge Rooney after studying video evidence of the incident in the clubs' 2-2 draw.
The pair tangled after a tackle and Rooney appeared to land on the AaB midfielder's chest in the aftermath but UEFA ruled any contact was accidental rather than malicious.
A spokesman said: "UEFA will not open any disciplinary proceedings against Wayne Rooney."
Risgard said the referee would have sent the United striker off if he had seen the incident during the match, but added it was all part and parcel of football after Rooney apologised after the game.
Rooney could have faced a suspension for part of the knockout stages had UEFA decided to take action.
Meanwhile, Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo will not face any disciplinary action after kicking out at Tottenham Hotspurs' Michael Dawson at the weekend.
Ronaldo was seen to aim a little flick at Dawson after being tackled in Saturday's goalless Premier League draw at White Hart Lane.
Referee Mike Dean, who did not take action during the game, has looked at the incident but has not deemed it serious.
A Football Association spokesman said: "We contacted the referee, who confirmed he didn't see the incident at the time and, having reviewed footage, he has also confirmed he would not have sent the player off for violent conduct had he seen it.
"On that basis, no further action will be taken.''
