One of our more experienced defenders, Rob passed the 100-appearance milestone last season and also captained the side on several occasions.
Now into his sixth season at the club, the centre back has developed considerably since joining the club from Bolton Wanderers in 2016, where he had just been voted Player of the Season in the Championship.
He ended his first season in London with convincing displays in both the FA Cup semi-final and final to earn his first silverware, and repeated the feat in 2020 with another victory over Chelsea at Wembley. He started last season lifting more silverware – the Community Shield – and in January 2021 he signed a new long-term contract with the club.
A physically commanding but technically adept defender, Rob has represented England Under-21s, winning the Toulon Tournament in 2016.
