Man Utd's Ferdinand not worrying about England career

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand says he is not going to worry too much about what may or may not be left of his England playing days.

The 33-year old centre-half was overlooked by Roy Hodgson for the Three Lions' Euro2012 squad this summer and insists that playing again for his country is not something that he thinks about often.

"My answer's the same as last season," the former England skipper said.

"Manchester United is at the forefront of my mind. It's my club and this is what I love doing.

"If anything else comes of it, so be it, but I don't think about anything else except for playing for Manchester United and hopefully winning back the league.

"It has been well documented that I have had injuries over the last few seasons. Last season, thanks to the physios and sports science team at United, I felt I managed my back really well. They helped me through.

"Long may that continue because I would like to play a similar amount of games this season."
