In November 2009, he signed a pre-contract with Parma[5] and joined the Italian club after the end of season. He played for Parma's primavera in the 2011 edition of the Torneo di Viareggio, but made just two league starts and a substitute appearance for the first-team in his debut season. He made 4 appearances the following year.


In June 2012, Padova confirmed that Rolf Feltscher was signed on a loan deal from Parma with an option to buy for the year 2012-13[6]


He joined MSV Duisburg for the 2014–15 season.[7]
