Montenegro defender supports Wayne Rooney

Wayne Rooney has been supported by the Montenegro defender he famously kicked to receive a red card and three match suspension at Euro 2012, as the player has written to Uefa in an attempt to plead for leniency.

The letter will be used to strengthen the FA’s appeal to Rooney’s ban, should they make one. According to the Daily Mail, Miodrag Dzudovic teamed up with Soviet Sport newspaper in sending a direct letter to Uefa president Michel Platini.

England manager Fabio Capello recently revealed that he will not play the Manchester United star in the Three Lions’ warm-up games before next year’s tournament in Poland and Ukraine. However Rooney could receive a reprieve should the appeal work in his favour.

The letter stated that: “Miodrag would like to underline that he didn’t notice any signs of aggression in Rooney’s actions.

“In his opinion the England national team player was driven by emotions and it was an act of desperation rather than anger.
“The most important detail we ask to take notice of is Wayne Rooney’s apology. He realised his fault and felt guilty. Uefa pay so much attention to ‘Fair Play’ principles but Wayne’s behaviour is the brightest example of fairness.

“It is rare when a player leaves the field blaming no one but himself after being sent off. In our opinion, Wayne Rooney shouldn’t be banned even for a single game. We hope to be heard in Uefa.”
