Born in Setúbal, de Deus spent several years associated to local Vitória Futebol Clube, joining its youth system at the age of 13 and making his senior debuts in 1995.
During his nine-year senior career, he never competed in higher than the second tier, and represented C.D. Beja, Seixal FC, Lusitano G.C. and F.C. Barreirense, before retiring with his first club Vitória at the end of the 2003–04 season, at only 27.
De Deus started working as a coach immediately after retiring, working with Vitória de Setúbal in the fitness department and having a spell with G.D. Interclube in Angola, also as a fitness coach. His first job as a manager was with the Cape Verde national team, which he left after an unsuccessful qualification campaign for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
In the 2010 summer, de Deus was appointed at Segunda División B club AD Ceuta. He was sacked by the Spaniards before the end of the year, however, returning to Portugal and joining S.C. Farense, which he could not prevent from relegating from the third level in spite of an incredible comeback.
From 2011 to 2013, de Deus worked in Portugal's second tier, with Atlético Clube de Portugal and U.D. Oliveirense. For the 2013–14 campaign he was appointed at Gil Vicente FC, thus making his debut in the Primeira Liga.
After a poor start to 2014–15, which saw the team lose the first three league matches, de Deus was relieved of his duties.
