LONDON (AP) - The English Premier League wants a handshake between John Terry and Anton Ferdinand before the Chelsea and Queens Park Rangers match in April.
Ferdinand was allegedly racially abused by Terry during a last league match in October. The Football Association allowed the sides to forgo the traditional handshake when the two teams met in January.
Terry will stand trial in July on a charge of racially abusing Ferdinand. The league announced Tuesday it will not scrap the handshake before Chelsea-QPR on April 29.
Chief executive Richard Scudamore says the handshake "should continue _ period."
