Chelsea manager also insists Terry will not be affected by outcome of FA disciplinary hearing

1. Ferdinand should be admired for handshake snub: In the warped world of football fandom it was no surprise that Chelsea supporters abused Anton Ferdinand last week; less explicable was the observation of neutral observers, including the PFA chief executive, Gordon Taylor, that Ferdinand should have shaken hands with a man he believes racially abused him. Ferdinand is not grandstanding, he is just being true to himself when it would be much easier not to, and he should be admired for that. It is true the case has already been to court and John Terry found not guilty but the magistrate’s summing-up suggested he would have returned a verdict of “not proven” had it been available, as it is in Scotland. Ferdinand may yet be vindicated when the FA conducts its own hearing into the case this week. This takes place against the backdrop of last week’s report by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport, which stressed that much more needs to be done to eradicate racism from the game.
