Roderick arrived in S.L. Benfica's youth academy in 2000 (aged nine), from Lisbon neighbours Odivelas Futebol Clube. He was promoted to the first team nine years later after having played in all the youth ranks of the Portuguese League giants, and appeared in some pre-season and League Cup matches in his debut campaign.
For 2011–12, Roderick was loaned to Servette FC in Switzerland – coached by former Benfica player João Alves – in a season-long move. On 31 July 2012 he joined Deportivo de La Coruña in La Liga, in the same predicament; he returned to Benfica in the following transfer window, however.
