Hughes questions need for handshakes

QPR manager Mark Hughes said the requirement for players to shake hands "causes more problems than it solves" after Anton Ferdinand snubbed Chelsea duo John Terry and Ashley Cole on Saturday.

All the focus was on Ferdinand ahead of the game and he refused to exchange pleasantries with Terry and Cole following their involvement in the recent court case against the Chelsea captain. Terry was cleared of the charges in the High Court but could still face FA action over the matter.

QPR captain Park Ji-Sung also declined the chance to shake the pairs' hands, and Hughes feels the requirement for the players to shake hands can lead to unnecessary friction.

"I had a discussion and some were prepared to shake the opposition's hand and some weren't," Hughes said after the teams' 0-0 draw. "It was personal choice. I've got the utmost respect for the Respect campaign but this element causes more problems than it solves."

Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo said the players had acted professionally on the day. "We offered. We've done our part," Di Matteo said. "Both sets of players have focused on the football, showed how professional they are."
