Man Utd's Ferdinand unconcerned over England future

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is concentrating solely on his club career and not about retiring from international football. The experienced United centre-back was left out of England's Euro 2012 squad for what the manager Roy Hodgson described as "footballing reasons" and was also controversially overlooked following an injury to Gary Cahill, with Hodgson calling up Liverpool youngster Martin Kelly instead.

"My answer's the same as last season," the 33 year old 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."
