Marco Rossi (born 30 September 1987) is an Italian who plays as a central defender for New Zealand club Wellington Phoenix in the Australian A-League.

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 involvement in 2011 Italian football scandal, Parma gave up the remain 50% registration rights for free. Rossi was banned for 1 year and 8 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]
