Rósa played for a number of clubs in his homeland of Hungary, ending up at Ferencváros where he won the league and cup double in 2004. He played in six European ties (both UEFA Cup and Champions League qualifiers) during his spell here, scoring six times.
He moved on loan to English Championship side Wolves in January 2006 on a six-month trial contract, where he linked up with former Ferencváros teammate Gábor Gyepes. He made his debut for the club on 2 January 2006 in a 2–0 defeat at Coventry City, and went on to make nine league appearances in the rest of the campaign, scoring twice. At the end of the season, Rosa and Wolves agreed a three-year contract.
However, the surprise departure of Glenn Hoddle and arrival of Mick McCarthy as manager in the summer saw him left out of first team contention afterwards. McCarthy admitted that Rosa may struggle to figure in his formation. The midfielder was loaned to League One Cheltenham Town for a month in the spring of 2007, but he was then put on the transfer list by Wolves. He made a brief substitute appearance for Wolves in the League Cup during the following season, but despite a strong goalscoring record in reserve games, never featured in the first team again.
Rósa finally left Wolves on 13 January 2009, after having his contract cancelled by mutual consent. Shortly afterwards, he signed for Scottish club Hibernian after a successful trial. He played 12 times for Hibs before leaving the club at the end of his contract. Soon afterwards, the Edinburgh Evening News claimed that Rosa was a target for city rivals Hearts, but he instead returned to Ferencvaros.
