Anton Ferdinand dons anti-racism T-shirt
Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand took part in the anti-racism initiative by wearing a T-shirt in support of the Kick It Out campaign during the warm-up for Saturday's Premier League game at Arsenal.
Ferdinand, along with his brother, Manchester United defender Rio, did not wear the campaign T-shirts last weekend and released a statement earlier this week insisting that Kick It Out needed to become "more relevant," while recognizing the fantastic work it had done in the past.
The statement also expressed the brothers' disappointment with the Football Association, after its decision to ban John Terry for four games for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand in a match last October while banning Liverpool striker Luis Suarez for eight matches for a similar offence.
Friday, QPR boss Mark Hughes had said he expected Anton Ferdinand to continue his boycott of the Kick it Out shirt.
Terry backed the Kick It Out campaign in his program notes ahead of Sunday's game.
In his "captain's notes," published on The Sun's website, Terry wrote: "This is our dedicated match for the Kick It Out One Game, One Community campaign. We continue to be committed to eradicating all forms of discrimination from our game and creating a great atmosphere around the stadium."
Cole gave evidence on behalf of Terry in the criminal case relating to the October 2011 incident, leading Rio Ferdinand to endorse a tweet which referred to Cole as a "choc ice." Ferdinand was subsequently fined by the FA for re-tweeting the offending tweet.
