Born in Recife, Pernambuco, Brito spent the vast majority of his professional career in Portugal, representing Vitória de Guimarães (no league games played), F.C. Paços de Ferreira (two spells), C.D. Feirense, Rio Ave FC (two stints), Vitória de Setúbal and Varzim SC.
Over the course of eight seasons he amassed top division totals of 197 games and seven goals, in representation of all the clubs except Paços, with which he competed solely in the second level. He retired at the end of 1987–88 at the age of 36, after suffering top flight relegation with Varzim.
Brito was in charge of Varzim for two games in his last season as a player, managing two draws. Subsequently, he had two spells as head coach with lowly CA Macedo de Cavaleiros.
In the 2001–02 campaign, at U.D. Leiria, Brito started a link with José Mourinho that would last eight years. The assistant was part of a quartet that also included fitness coach Rui Faria, goalkeeping coach Silvino Louro and chief scout André Villas-Boas that followed the young manager from F.C. Porto to Chelsea.
Brito also specialised in audio-visual work to prepare the team for matches. As Mourinho left the Premier League side early into 2007–08, so did his entire staff. On 5 June 2010 he was appointed head coach at C.F. Os Belenenses in the second division, but was sacked the following month before the season had even started.
