Julio Hernán Rossi began his professional career at Argentinian giants Club Atlético River Plate in 1995. During his time there he had a short and unsuccessful loan spell at J-League side Avispa Fukuoka. He moved to the Swiss Super League with FC Lugano in 1998 where he quickly became a fans' favourie because of his skill, pace and goalscoring ability. His blood proved to be too rich for Lugano, though, as he signed for Swiss Champions FC Basel in 2002. At Basel he formed an effective striking partnership with fellow Argentine Christian Eduardo Giménez during the UEFA Champions League 2002-03 where they scored eleven goals between them. In 2006 he moved to France's Ligue 1 to play for FC Nantes Atlantique, but when the club were relegated in 2007, he was released on a free transfer. Ahead of the 2007/08 season he returned to Switzerland with Neuchâtel Xamax.
