Born in Rio de Janeiro, Canário played for Olaria Atlético Clube and America Football Club (RJ) in his country. In 1959 he moved to Spain where he would remain until his retirement, starting with Real Madrid and being used mainly as a backup during his three-year spell. He appeared in five games and scored one goal for the club in the European Cup, three of those matches being in the 1959–60 edition which ended in victory.

After spending the 1962–63 season with Sevilla FC Canário switched to Real Zaragoza, going on to be part of an attacking frontline that was dubbed Los Magníficos (The Magnificent) and also included Carlos Lapetra, Marcelino, Eleuterio Santos and Juan Manuel Villa – he acted as right half in the team's formation. He reached four Copa del Rey finals with the Aragonese during his stint, winning the tournament twice.
