Montenegro defender Miodrag Dzudovic has insisted he has not sent any letter of support backing Wayne Rooney.
Dzudovic was on the end of the challenge from Rooney, for which the England star was red carded and subsequently received a three-match ban.
As it stands Rooney will miss all three group games at the Euro 2012 finals, and England have lodged an appeal with the hope of getting this reduced.
Reports had suggested that Dzudovic, who has supported the England striker's cause, had written a letter to Uefa to help with the appeal.
But the Spartak Nalchik stopper insists he has not written any supporting letter on Rooney's behalf.
"The source of all this is one of the newspapers in Russia, which published that I wrote some kind of letter to Uefa, but this can't be further away from truth," he told Montenegrin newspaper Vijesti.
"That newspaper started an initiative, there were some Manchester United fans involved in all this. The editor asked me, if I want to support them and I said yes, why not, but it is a lie that I wrote a letter of support to Uefa."
