Born in Épinay-sur-Seine, Paris, Rabésandratana was brought up at AS Nancy's youth ranks, being promoted to the first team at age 18 by coach Aimé Jacquet, who would later manage the French national team. He made his Ligue 1 debut on 8 September 1990 in a 1–4 away loss against SM Caen, and remained an undisputed starter throughout the duration of his spell – in the 1995–96 season, the defensive-minded player scored a career-best 16 league goals as Les Chardons promoted from Ligue 2, only to be relegated the following year.
In 1997 Rabésandratana moved to Paris Saint-Germain FC, helping the club to the Cup, League Cup and Supercup in his debut year, and eventually gaining club captaincy. However, with the arrival of new coach Luis Fernández, he gradually lost his importance.
After a turbulent season with Greece's AEK Athens FC, Rabésandratana returned home and signed with lowly LB Châteauroux. Two years after he moved to Belgium with R.A.E.C. Mons, which he helped promote in his second year, going on to be mainly used as a substitute during his spell.
Rabésandratana retired professionally in 2007 at the age of 35, and focused on obtaining his coaching degree. He began working as a manager with the under-18 team at Jeunesse Sportive Juridiction de Saint-Émilion.
In 2014, Rabésandratana co-founded the US Champions Soccer Academy with fellow former footballer Wagneau Eloi and entrepreneur Ravy Truchot. Additionally, he served as programming director and Eloi's assistant coach of the FC Miami City Champions, a new Premier Development League expansion franchise.
