Where is Rob Lee now?

Having spent the majority of his career at Charlton Athletic and Newcastle United, Rob Lee dropped down the leagues and finally retired after his release from Wycombe Wanderers in 2006.

Starting playing professionally in 1983, he ended up making 837 first team appearances, scoring 123 goals for six teams winning the First Division title with the Magpies in 1993.

An England international, he represented his country on 21 occasions in the mid-nineties scoring two goals. He was also a member of the 1998 FIFA World Cup squad.

Upon retiring Lee has worked as a pundit and co-commentator on various sports channels including Astro SuperSport and TEN Sports.

He is also part of the successful podcast The Real Offside alongside comedian Ricky Grover and football agent Eddie Duah.

Lee’s two sons, Eliott and Oliver currently ply their trades as professional footballers and played together during their time at Luton Town in 2017.

In March 2019, he participated in a TV series called ‘Harry’s Heroes’ which saw football manager Harry Redknapp take a number of ex-professionals on a journey to lose weight with the end goal of playing a team of ex-Germany internationals.

Ironically, England won the game 4-2 which was the same scoreline as the 1966 World Cup Final.

Later that year he was inducted into Newcastle United’s Hall of Fame.

In 2020 he took part in the second series of ‘Harry Heroes which saw the England players travel to Germany to play in a grudge match which they won 1-0.
