Is it time for the FA to call it a day with pre-match handshakes? Now if you are bemused by my post then you’ve obviously missed all the controversy surrounding the game between QPR and Chelsea.
Anton Ferdinand refused to shake John Terry or Ashley Cole’s hands before the game in their first meeting this season. The new animosity follows Anton Ferdinand’s accusation that John Terry racially abused him during a clash last season. (I won’t be saying my actual thoughts on the incident). To be perfectly honest following the whole handshake bust up between Luis Suarez and Patrice Evra the FA should have stepped in and stopped it there and then before it could get any worse. The pre-match handshake has not got long-standing tradition within the beautiful game as it was only introduced in 2004 as a gesture of goodwill.
John Terry was cleared of all charges over the summer, and it was made apparent early on that considering the fact their could be repercussions from what happened last season the pre-match handshake still took place.
Yes, some players may not get on just like any of us in everyday life.
