The attacker joined the Ndola based club from city rivals Biuldcon as a free agent on November, 2018 on a year two year deal. The Ghanaian began his United career with a goal against Nigerien side AS Sonidep in the CAF Champions League qualifier. 

When quizzed about his return to Ghana, Rahim had these words to spill, "Personally I am happy my team will be playing Kotoko, I believe it will offer me the opportunity to showcase my talent to the national team handlers."

Having dropped off from the Champions League to compete in the Confederations Cup,  Zesco will fancy their chances and the inclusion of the club's record goal poacher, Jese Were affirms it. Jese's 5 goals in the CAF competitions this season and a goal in the league takes his  tally to 66. The Kenyan was previously tied with Jackson Mwanza on 60 goals.
