He played almost exclusively for modest clubs in Brazil (seven teams in total), except for a brief spell with Atlético Mineiro. Over the course of 12 seasons he competed in Spain, most notably with Celta, amassing La Liga totals of 148 games and 62 goals in five years.
Catanha represented the Spanish national team on three occasions in the year 2000.
Catanha was born in Recife. After having played with modest clubs in his native country, he arrived in 1995 in Portugal to play for C.F. Os Belenenses, teaming up with countryman Everton Giovanella with whom he would later play in two clubs in Spain; there, he started competing in the second division, with UD Salamanca and CD Leganés.
Moving to Málaga CF in 1998–99, Catanha contributed with 26 goals to the Andalusia outfit's La Liga promotion (winning the Pichichi Trophy). He scored a further 24 in 1999–2000's top flight, tied for second with Atlético Madrid's Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
Catanha joined Celta de Vigo in July 2000, being an instrumental part of the Galician side's domestic and European exploits in a three-year span. However, when Celta played UEFA Champions League in 2003–04, he only backed up Savo Milošević, and Celta was also relegated.
After that Catanha went pretty much unnoticed, representing FC Krylia Sovetov Samara, Belenenses, Marília Atlético Clube and Clube Atlético Mineiro. In January 2006 he returned to Spain, playing with modest teams CD Linares (third level, two 1/2 seasons) and Unión Estepona CF (division four).
In early 2010, aged nearly 38, Catanha returned to his nation of birth, resuming his career in the lower leagues.
Catanha gained three caps for the Spanish national team (all in 2000), despite being born in Brazil. His debut came on 7 October 2000, in a 2002 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Israel (2–0 home win).
