One of the best foreign players to ever play in Israel, Croatian Giovanni Rosso will leave to end his career in his boyhood club Hajduk Split. New Haifa coach Elish Levy said the veteran midfielder is not in the plans and this contributed for him to take the decision.

Rosso came to Israel in season 96/97 to Hapoel Beer Sheva under coach Eli Gutman, in his first season a fantastic goal gave the Neguev team a State Cup title against Maccabi Tel Aviv.
One season later he moved to Hapoel Haifa with Gutman and in 98/99 he gave a historical title for Hapoel Haifa.
Rosso then moved to Beitar where he had a very bad spell and once again with Gutman at helm.
The Croatian then moved to Maccabi Haifa where he had a very good season leading the Greens in a good European campaign. This moment rent him a place in Croatia NT (since he took long to have the Israeli citizenship he chose Croatia) and played Euro 2004.
After the Euro a serious injury left him oput almost all season and Maccai Tel Aviv with the "Galacticos" money was not a good moment for the player who returned to Haifa last season.

Thank You Giovanni for everything!!

Come back!
