Marco Negeri, Malaysian football specialist and journalist, wrote: “Amazing display by Rabih Ataya on his Malaysian football debut. Uitm FC is truly lucky to have a player of such calibre.”
There is a consensus among Malaysian football journalists about the level of Rabih Ataya.
For Keesh Sundaresan: “Rabih Ataya has easily been my fav player in the Liga Super this season. Brings that ‘X’ factor on the pitch!”
He is therefore wanted by top Malaysian clubs – one of them is Kedah FC, ranked second in the current Malaysian Super League.
