Izale McLeod discusses Crawley departure

Joe Jones

New Notts County striker Izale McLeod has made an immediate mark at Meadow Lane since his arrival a month ago, nabbing two goals in three league games plus another in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy to give the Notts faithful a hint of hope for the season ahead.

Prior to his arrival in the East Midlands, however, the 30-year-old was involved in a long and protracted transfer saga with former club Crawley Town – who the Magpies face tonight.

A number of transfer bids came and went, and his stock with the Red Devils fans appeared to fall as stories about how he was allegedly handling his departure began to surface.

It was no surprise that, given tonight’s fixture at the Lane, he would be asked about his take on the whole debacle.

He said: "I knew from the end of the season there was interest from other clubs. It was left to my agent and for the club to try to sort out.

"Listen… I've been around the block. I know what transfers are all about. I just kept my head down and worked on my fitness.

"But I know what football clubs are like. Everybody talks about individual players and they say players are doing this and they are doing that.

"But what people outside of football don't realise is how clubs manipulate situations to make the players look bad.

"However, I've got nothing bad to say about Crawley, I made a lot of friends there and I wish them all the best."

To discuss Izale McLeod's views on his former club, there's a forum thread up on the site. To check out the build-up to tonight's game, visit the Pride of Nottingham match thread and join the conversation.
