Chelsea skipper John Terry has backed the Kick It Out campaign in his programme notes ahead of Sunday's game against Manchester United, stressing the club's wish to banish all forms of discrimination from football.

John Terry: Backed campaign in programme notes

Terry will this afternoon serve the second game of his four-match ban for racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.

The last few days appear to have heralded the first signs of peace breaking out between the Ferdinand brothers and Blues duo Terry and Ashley Cole.

Anton Ferdinand took part in yesterday's anti-racism initiative by wearing a Kick It Out T-shirt in the warm-up ahead of his team's match at Arsenal - a gesture expected to be followed by a handshake between his brother, United centre-back Rio, and Cole before Sunday's game.

In his 'captain's notes' in the matchday programme, published on www.thesun.co.uk, 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."
