Club career


Rossi began his footballing career with Atalanta, playing in youth categories including Atalanta B.C. Primavera. In June 2009, he was promoted to first team to be a third-choice goalkeeper, and received the 91 jersey. Despite being at the club for over 15 years, Rossi has only made 3 appearances for the club, all of which were off the bench.

In July 2011, Rossi was loaned to Lumezzane, for one season,[1][2] and he made his debut on 7 August, in a Coppa Italia match against Pro Patria.[3] In the next phase, he stayed as a starter, and his team played against Torino, suffering a 1–0 away defeat and eventually knocked out of the Coppa Italia.[4] However, in January 2012, his loan was terminated, and he joined Cuneo for the rest of the season. His loan was renewed for the 2012–13 season as well.

Rossi was signed by Pavia, Lupa Roma,[5] Prato[6] and Teramo in the 2013–14, 2014–15, 2015–16 and 2016–17 seasons respectively, all in temporary deals. In January 2017, he returned to his parent club and was assigned to the first team.
