Rooney won't be charged over Champions league incident

The Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has escaped disciplinary action over an alleged "stamping" in their Champions League football match earlier this month against AaB Aalborg.

Rooney faced a three-match ban after the incident at Old Trafford last week when United drew 2-all with the Danish team Aalborg, but a UEFA spokesman says after investigating the incident they decided there was no case to answer.
