Jordanian Pro League (tier 1)

Majed Osman – Ramtha SC

A wonderful story for Majed Osman. The Jordan Premier League started this week. Osman faced Al Faisaly. He was close to delivering an assist but his teammate failed to score. Majed’s shot hit the post in the first half as well!

Promising debut for Osman. If he continues to deliver at this kind of level, he will surely be knocking at the door of the national team.

Rabih Ataya – UiTM FC

Rabih Ataya is the best player of his team. He can act like a leader! His team lost 2-1 against the best Malaysian team, JDT. This is UiTM’S second defeat in a row.

Ataya is playing with a very young team who is lacking experience. Nevertheless, he is showing good things.

Khalil Khamis – Pahang FA
