Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes that Reading striker Jason Roberts is wrong to snub the 'Kick It Out' campaign and insists that his players will wear anti-racism T-shirts on Saturday.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that his players will respect the 'Kick It Out' campaign by wearing their anti-racism T-shirts and believes that Reading striker Jason Roberts is wrong to snub the group.

Reports have claimed that United defender Rio Ferdinand will boycott the group following the four-match ban issued to Chelsea captain John Terry for racially abusing Ferdinand's brother Anton.

Despite these reports, Ferguson has revealed that his players will come together to show their support for the anti-racism campaign and don the T-shirts ahead of their match against Stoke City at Old Trafford.

The Scottish boss has also hit out at Roberts, who claimed yesterday that 'Kick It Out' have not done enough to eradicate racism from the game.

"I have to disagree with Jason Roberts. I think he is making the wrong point," said Ferguson. "Everyone should be united, with all the players in the country wearing the 'Kick It Out' tops."

Arsenal and Aston Villa have also confirmed that all players will wear T-shirts ahead of their respective fixtures this weekend.
