Having retired in 2010, Izzy has remained in the game in a scouting capacity.

“”My own experience has taught me how, particularly when you’re young and making your way in a sport as competitive as football, bad things can happen to you. When they do you need to have good people around you and you need to work hard to retain or regain respect and the determination to keep going. I want to help players realise their ambitions no matter how  great the challenge they may face at any point.”
