He left Barnsley on June 30, 2010. After a lot of deliberation he turned down Crystal Palace to return to Barnsley on July 20 as he decided against moving to London. At the end of the 2010–11 Championship season, he was released from Barnsley.

Born in Buenos Aires, Colace joined Flamengo on August 30, 2007, and on September 23, 2007, he played his first match as a Flamengo player, a Campeonato Brasileiro match against Juventude at Estádio Alfredo Jaconi, in which he came as a substitute for Cristian. He joined English club Barnsley on a three-year deal on June 27, 2008. During the 2009-10 season, Colace scored 8 goals in all competitions. He received Barnsley's player of the season and player's player of the season award on April 21, 2010, but was not keen on signing a new contract. He finally agreed to return to Oakwell on July 20, 2010, signing a two-year contract.

Listed for loan due to a loss in form with Barnsley, on May 31, 2011 Colace signed with Mexican club Estudiantes Tecos. Tecos was relegated in the 2011-12 season and he joined Ligue 2 side AJ Auxerre in September 2012.
