In the 2001 summer he signed for S.L. Benfica but never appeared officially for the club, spending one year on loan to the latter side before joining permanently.
Additionally, Berto played 186 second division matches. In that level, in the 2003–04 campaign, he scored a career-best ten goals in 30 games for Varzim, mostly through his main asset, free kicks.
