Zeno Ibsen Rossi

Date of birth:
28th October 2000

Towering central defender Zeno Ibsen Rossi joined the Cherries in 2017 after impressing during a trial spell.

Born in Streatham, London, he was previously on the books at Brentford and Southampton.

In 2018/19, he played his part as the Cherries reached the quarter-final of the FA Youth Cup – the club’s best run in the competition for 50 years.

He was rewarded with his first professional contract after completing his two-year scholarship at the end of 2018/19.

Ibsen Rossi has trained regularly with Eddie Howe’s first team and travelled with the squad for the Premier League match with Arsenal in October 2019.   

Schooled at Uxbridge High, he represented Middlesex at athletics.

In August 2020, he joined Scottish Premiership outfit Kilmarnock on loan, making his debut in a 4-0 win over Dundee United.

After impressing Scott Parker during pre-season, Ibsen Rossi partnered Lloyd Kelly in the heart of the first team's defence in two friendlies ahead of 2021/22 season, one of which came against Champions League winners Chelsea.

His assured performances saw him retain his place and he made his competitive debut for the club when playing 90 minutes in the 5-0 Carabao Cup win over MK Dons to start the campaign.

The centre-back's first Championship opportunity then arrived a fortnight later when injuries opened the door for Ibsen Rossi to start against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.
