Speaking after joining HFC, Rabeeh said, “Hyderabad FC is currently a club where most young footballers would love to play.

Their major contribution to the national team gives all young players belief, and I cannot wait to be a part of the club and show my quality.”

A versatile winger who can also function as a full-back, Rabeeh joins as a Developmental Player. As he aims to break into the first team, Reserve Team Coach Shameel Chembakath believes the youngster will be a valuable addition to the squad.
