Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has insisted QPR's Anton Ferdinand should shake hands with John Terry before Saturday's FA Cup clash at Loftus Road.

Villas-Boas said he hoped and expected Ferdinand not to snub Terry, despite allegations the Rangers defender was the victim of a racist slur from the England captain during October's Barclays Premier League game between the sides.

Asked if it was important that the pair shook hands, Villas-Boas said: "Extremely important, extremely important."
