Anton wears campaign T-shirt

Ferdinand: In his T-shirt

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 recognising 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.

Saturday's gesture by Ferdinand is expected to be followed by a handshake between Rio Ferdinand and Ashley Cole before United play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

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 f or re-tweeting the offending tweet.
