Here is a quick interview with Chaim
Having also had exposure in the AC Milan Training Camp in 2008 and 2009, Chaim was ready for his American move in August 2014, when he signed on to the Armada’s 25-man development roster. Aged just 15, he was easily the youngest player in a squad full of mature men.
Armada FC General Manager, Dario Sala had this to say about Chaim, “Chaim is a tremendous young prospect for our club, He has a great amount of potential, and we look forward to seeing him develop and working to become a fixture in our lineup in the future.”
Chaim Roserie has options available to him, and choices to make in years to come and is currently awaiting official clearance to compete in official matches for the Armada, He did play 16 minutes in a friendly against legendary Argentine side Boca Juniors, providing a pretty back-heeled assist in the Armada’s 2-4 loss.
Keep your eye on the ball Chaim. Your future is bright.
