Man Utd keeper De Gea: England crazy ignoring Ferdinand

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is surprised England are ignoring teammate Rio Ferdinand.

De Gea insists Ferdinand, 33, still has what it takes to play at the highest level and he cannot believe the England manager doesn't share his view.

De Gea said: "For me, Rio is one of the best central defenders in Europe. I don't believe that people cannot realise his level.

"He still has the quality to be one of England's star players.

"I am not Hodgson, but personally I would always have Rio Ferdinand on my list for England matches."
