He played almost exclusively for modest clubs in his native 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.
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 teams in Spain; there, he started competing in the second division, with UD Salamanca and CD Leganés.
Moving to Málaga CF for the 1998–99 season, Catanha contributed with 26 goals to the Andalusia side's La Liga promotion, and also won 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 Galicians' domestic and European exploits in a three-year span. However, when the club played UEFA Champions League in the 2003–04 campaign, he only backed up Savo Milošević, and also suffered team relegation.
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 CD Linares (third level, two 1/2 seasons) and Unión Estepona CF (division four).
Catanha gained three caps for Spain – all in 2000 – despite being born in Brazil. His debut came on 7 October in a 2002 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Israel, coming on as a 71st-minute substitute for Ismael Urzaiz in a 2–0 home win.
