The centre-back has not played international football since 2011 but was called up by England coach Roy Hodgson for the World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro.
Ferdinand then pulled out, citing a detailed training schedule that manages his long-standing back problem and then controversially flew to Qatar to cover England’s match with San Marino as a television pundit.
The defender maintains that he still wants to play for England in the future but was the subject of abusive chanting from fans during Hodgson’s side’s 8-0 win over San Marino on Friday.
FIFA are investigating whether the chants directed at Ferdinand, and his brother Anton, had racist overtones.
United manager Ferguson, though, insisted that Ferdinand has handled the situation well and has no problem with the veteran taking long flights during the international break.
