Ferdinand insists there were no questions over his fitness when the time came for Hodgson to select his Euro 2012 squad.
He told The Sun: “I might have had a few injury problems in the past but I was in good shape.
“I played all our games in the run-in, the manager was happy with me, and I was feeling really good. You can’t ask for any more “I felt I had played well and was pleased with my form.
“To lose the title to City like we did and to then miss out on the Euros was hard to take, I admit that.
“But I’m already chomping at the bit to get back to United and start next season. I can’t wait to be honest. I’m not one for looking back — I’m looking forward and there’s still a lot for me to do in this game.
“Don’t anybody think I’m finished, because I’m certainly not.”
