Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has dismissed claims from Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini that he influenced Vincent Kompany's red card yesterday.

Mancini says Rooney convinced the ref to show Kompany red for his tackle on Nani.

The Italian said: "It was not a red card. Rooney told him his decision."

But Rooney tweeted: "Funny how people think i got kompany sent off. Im not ref. i didnt give red card. But it was a clear red card. 2 footed tackle."
