Montenegro player, Miodrag Dzudovic whom Manchester United Striker, Wayne Rooney kicked has asked UEFA to show leniency because Rooney had acted out of “desperation rather than anger”, and had been “provoked by problems his family had to face a short time before the game”.
UEFA’s hearing which took place at UEFA’s headquarters in Nyon saw the committee accepting Rooney’s appeal against his 3-match international ban he received for his red card in october. His suspension has however been reduced to 2 games.
The England player will now miss England matches against France and Sweden.
