Ian Marshall

Where is Ian Marshall now?

A larger than life character of the Premier League during the nineties, Ian Marshall retired from playing in 2002 after captaining Blackpool to the LDV Vans Trophy.

Playing for 18 years, he went onto make nearly 500 first-team appearances and scored over 100 goals. He also won the League Cup with Leicester City in 2000.

Upon retiring from playing, Marshall went into coaching and relocated to Canada where he ran his own soccer schools.

Eventually moving back to the UK he continued with his football coaching and joined forces with former Leicester City team mates Muzzy Izzet, Steve Claridge and Steve Walsh as part of their PTC Sports Group.

In 2015 the group launched a football academy based in Ipswich which was operated by Marshall and Ipswich Town legend Jason Dozzell but this has since folded

He used to do the odd Q & A session at sportsman dinners as well as hospitality at Leicester City and does a spot of television and radio work

One2Eleven (5-3-2 Formation)

Ian Marshall was a guest on Sky Sports programme The Fantasy Football Club in 2016 where he picked the eleven best players he had ever played with in their One2Eleven section.

GK – Tim Flowers – top man, good to have in the changing room. Extremely hard worker in training.

WB – Pontus Kamark – the best man-to-man marker I’ve ever seen. A brilliant trainer and looked after himself really well.

CB – Gerry Taggart – old-school player who just won the ball and passed it. There was no messing about with him.

CB – Matt Elliott – he read the game very well and also had a sexy little turn.

CB – Steve Walsh – He’s a total Leicester man and gave his all for Leicester every game -he’s a good captain to have.

WB – Steve Guppy – he wasn’t the greatest tackler in the world but had a great left peg. Good at tracking back.

CM – Muzzy Izzet – the best player I have played with. Had the tricks and scored some fantastic goals.

CM – Gary McAllister – a great free-kick taker and could ping a ball anywhere.

LM – Neil Lennon – loads of energy who got in there and won the ball. Always there if there was any trouble.

Striker – Emile Heskey – had everything, power, speed and strength. Very unselfish which meant that he didn’t score enough.

Striker – Tony Cottee – an out and out goalscorer. In the box he was tremendous.
