Steaua Bucureşti[edit]

Then was sold to Romanian team Steaua Bucureşti at the age of 21. Even though his spell with the Romanian team was short, his impact was immediate. He scored at his first match against FC Argeş Piteşti and had great performances in the next games. In a 2009 poll, he was chosen by the Steaua Bucharest fans in the team's Best XI for the past ten years.[1] Steaua Bucharest's Executive President Mihai Stoica has always expressed his amazement for the incredible technique and dribbling tricks Elton is capable of.[2]

In Saudi Arabia[edit]

Finally, he arrived at Al Nasr. He has been outstanding as of late with Al Nasr, scoring frequently and providing many assists, he is loved and cherished by the Al Nasr fans who find him unique. The most distinctive thing about the player, which all fans copy by wearing wigs, is his long afro hair. In 2009, Elton moved to Fortaleza Esporte Clube back in Brazil.

At the end of 2009, Élton moved to Dubai Club where he contributed to the team's winning of the Federation Cup. On February 2010, he was loaned to the UAE Giants Al Wasl FC for the rest of the 2009-10 season.[3]

In the 2012-2013 season he played for Al Fateh in 25 league games and scored 11 goals, helping the team win the first title in the history of the club. He then played in the Saudi Super Cup against Al-Ittihad Jeddah, after 90 minutes the score was 2-2 and the game went into extra time. Elton scored the winning goal of the game in the 111th minute, the final result was 3-2 for Al Fateh.
