Izuan Ibrahim passed away earlier today in Malaysia due to internal bleeding inside the brain.

Ibrahim was to start as the development team’s coach at Badminton Association of Malaysia from 1 January 2020.

He is survived by his wife and three children.

He is credited with guiding current world champion Kento Momota in his teenage years. He used to coach the Japanese back up squad when Momota was a member. He also served as a coach at the Nihong Badminton Association in Japan until recently.

“Izuan Ibrahim is one of the best badminton coaches I know, his desire to be in the national youth squad is unfulfilled but his service and dedication to badminton will be remembered forever,” said A’amar Hashim, President of Persatuan Badminton Perlis told Metro Arena.
