Former Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale who saw Ethan Ampadu as a potential England midfielder recommended him to the National team but after thorough observation, they told him he took too few touches.
MK dons manager also added that he phoned high esteemed men in the quest for registering Ampadu to the squad:
“I phoned England, very relevant people, to say you have to get hold of this chap,”
In response, they replied that they already have 12 players better than the 17-year-old and they are aware of Ampadu.
He also concluded that they were looking for a player that can make plenty of touches but ignored the magic Ethan does with one or two touches on the pitch,
Ampadu is not a player that holds the ball for too long quite alright but it is part of his skills to distribute the balls in relevant places.
“You have to have faith in the player and it was something we did at Exeter. I had faith in my ability to spot his talent, but I also had extreme faith in Ethan.”
Ampadu joined Ryan Giggs’s Wales last week and he took more authority in the midfield, created chances from impossible angles including an assist in the 4:1 victory against the Republic of Ireland.
Though England have a host of players but just a few names in the defensive midfield position of which Ethan would have been part of the young talent ingratiated in Southgate’s Three Lions.
EPL: How Chelsea Players Ignored Lampard’s Halftime Warning In Leicester City Draw
Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta has narrated how they ignored the warning from manager Frank Lampard during the halftime of their Premier League clash with Leicester City.
Azpilicueta told reporters about the halftime warning ignored by the Chelsea players shortly after the game.
According to him, Frank Lampard told the players that they needed a second goal to secure the points in the home game against the Foxes.
Chelsea had a one-nil lead at halftime courtesy young English midfielder Mason Mount after the former Derby County loanee dispossessed Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi to fire the ball past Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
It was a magical moment for Mason Mount who scored on his home debut for his boyhood club.
Leicester City equalized in the second half through a bullet header from the aforementioned Ndidi who atoned for his error in the first half.
The header from Super Eagles star Ndidi was enough to earn Leicester City a point from the game.
Cesar Azpilicueta and Chelsea are still waiting for their first win of the season after three games.
Their next game is the league visit to newly promoted outfit Norwich City who won their first game of the season via the 3-1 win over Newcastle United at the weekend.
Lampard Singles Out One Player After Leicester City Draw
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard singled out one player for praise after his team could only manage a draw against Leicester City.

After the game, Frank Lampard was full of praise for young Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount for his performance against the Foxes.

Mason Mount has been in very good form for Chelsea since he returned to the club from his loan spell at English Championship club Derby County.
The 20-year-old midfielder played at Derby County for Frank Lampard last season as the Rams got to the Championship playoff final before being beaten 2-1 by Aston Villa who are in the Premier League as a result of that win.
Mason Mount returned to Chelsea from the Derby County loan spell and was one of the best players for the Blues during preseason.
He has continued that form into the new season after the midfielder robbed Leicester City star Wilfried Ndidi to give Chelsea a first-half lead.
Ndidi atoned for his error with a bullet header in the second half thereby earning a 1-1 draw for the Foxes.

The young English player has started the season well despite the struggles recorded by Chelsea under Frank Lampard this season.
Mason Mount was one of the few Chelsea players that finished the Manchester United game with a little credit.
The 20-year-old was one of the best Chelsea players during the game which ended in a 4-0 win at Old Trafford.
Mason Mount went on to make a substitute appearance in the UEFA Super Cup loss to Liverpool last week Wednesday.
Chelsea lost 5-4 on penalties after the two Premier League giants played out a 1-1 draw at the end of ninety minutes and extra time.
Mason Mount then played a starring role for Chelsea in the 1-1 draw at home to Leicester City.
Chelsea took the lead through Mason Mount in the first half before Wilfried Ndidi earned a share of the spoils for Leicester City with a second half header.
