Could someone point me in the right direction on a question related to Ericsson's work (please forget Gladwell's drivel)?

Where does Ericsson state that deliberate practice requires early specialisation? I have read this position stated many times by coach educators. Given the multifaceted nature of sport, can deliberate practice aim to improve global sport attributes (e.g. fundamental movements, emotional control, imagery, reflection, decision-making) without the need to specialise at an early stage in any particular sport? Why do authors continue to link the two?

To add, I feel that Ericsson gets a raw deal. Below is a link to his research page where there are several replies to articles made about his work and theory of deliberate practice.

Does the author have anything to add on the subject of Deliberate Practice and its link to early specialisation?
