The 33-year-old impressed for the Red Devils in the absence of captain Nemanja Vidić last season after making 30 Premier League appearances – his highest tally in a campaign since 2008.
But Ferdinand was controversially overlooked by Hodgson in his original 23-man selection for the European championship in Poland and Ukraine.
The centre-half also missed out on a call-up after Gary Cahill was ruled out of the tournament last week, with Liverpool’s Martin Kelly drafted in as a replacement.
And although Ferdinand admitted his prospects of playing for England again are looking bleak, the former Leeds United star insists he will remain available for selection after Euro 2012.
“You would have to say it might be over with England for me. If I’m not getting picked now, especially when people are out injured, then it’s unlikely I will be picked again,” he told the Sun.
“I always said I wouldn’t retire from international football until I stopped playing and I won’t. I will still be available.”
He added: “Of course I was upset not to be in the squad. That’s a perfectly natural reaction.
“I love being involved in football at the very top. I won’t discuss what Mr Hodgson has said to me but he knows I wanted to be in the squad.”
