About Rob Swan
Rob is editor of GiveMeSport, with over 15 years experience covering sport in various capacities since graduating from university with a degree in journalism. A childhood obsession for all things football developed into a career writing about the beautiful game. He joined GiveMeSport in 2013 and has covered countless football matches, interviewed various high-profile figures and written well over 10,000 articles during that time. Zinedine Zidane was his footballing idol growing up (a maestro capable of turning football into art) although Lionel Messi has brought him an equal amount of joy since first watching the Argentine play in 2005. However, Wayne Rooney scored the best goal he's ever seen live: *that* overhead kick against Manchester City at Old Trafford.
