Marco Rossi (Italian pronunciation: [ˈmarko ˈrossi]; born 30 September 1987) is an Italian who is currently play for Robur Siena in Serie C.

Club career[edit]

In July 2009, Parma exchanged Rossi with Antonio Mirante of Sampdoria, signing a season-long loan. On 24 June 2011, he was signed by Cesena in a co-ownership deal for €2 million[1][2] after he spent a year with Bari.[3] After the deal, Alberto Galuppo returned to Parma in July 2011 for €1 million.

In June 2012 the co-ownership was renewed.[4] However, due to Rossi's involvement in the 2011 Italian football scandal, Parma gave up the remaining 50% registration rights for free. Rossi was banned for one year and eight months, thus Cesena terminated his contract.[5]

On 31 March 2014, Rossi was signed by Perugia.[6] In January 2015, he was signed by Varese in a temporary deal.[7]

On 9 August 2016, it was announced that Rossi signed for the A-League club Wellington Phoenix.[8] After playing for the Phoenix for two seasons for 38 games including 37 starts, Rossi left the club at the end of his contract.[9]

In July 2018, Rossi moved to Robur Siena in Serie C.[10]
