He was Besiktas' leading goalscorer in the 2006–07 season, with 20 goals in all competitions. Bobô started the 2007–08 season by scoring three goals in the first three matches, most notably a pair of goals in the 3–0 victory over FC Sheriff in the Champions League 2nd qualifying round. His early season form prompted the Beşiktaş board to agree an extension of his contract until 2011.
On 20 October 2007 Beşiktaş faced Trabzonspor, an encounter subject to intense media interest. Trabzonspor took an early lead through Gökdeniz and were 2–0 up by the sixth minute thanks to a goal from Yattara. But a Burak header put Beşiktaş back into contention and a penalty from Delgado equalized the score just before half time. In the second half, Beşiktaş goalkeeper Rüştü was sent off for handling outside of the box in the 79th minute, and Bobô replaced him until the end of the game. He made several saves, helping Beşiktaş secure a vital away victory. Bobô later admitted that he had been worried about Trabzonspor's attacks on goal, particularly a free-kick by playmaker Ceyhun and a header by striker Umut. He told the press:
"I applied for goal as keeper to help my team. I wasn't physically ready at the beginning of season. I had difficulties with my knee and back. I had attended the games late minutes."
Additionally he said:
"Cisse was also willing to replace the goalkeeper. I just realized that I felt good and thought that I wouldn't concede a goal. The threats from near by our line were dangerous. I was really dreading free-kick of Ceyhun Eriş. To be a keeper is a difficult role. You could concede in any tiny error."
On 25 October 2007, Bobô scored in Beşiktaş's 2–1 Champions' League victory over Liverpool at Inonu Stadium. He opened the scoring with a third-minute goal on 3 November 2007 in Beşiktaş's Turkish League 11th matchday clash with Fenerbahçe in Kadıköy, but the score was followed by several misses and Beşiktaş ultimately lost 2–1, giving Fenerbahçe their first home victory over Beşiktaş in six and a half years. This was the 319th encounter between two teams. The following weekend Bobô again scored, his 38th goal for Beşiktaş, in a 1–2 defeat at home to in-form Sivasspor. With the goal he beat Bosnian footballer Mersad Kovačević's record and became Beşiktaş's all-time top scorer.
On 28 November 2007, Wednesday, Beşiktaş hosted Marseille on the matchday 5 in Champions League. Bobô scored the winning goal of his team just before the final whistle on 88th minute after a lob through pass by Delgado towards the space on right wing where Bobô picked the ball up. Then he went though the box and beaten French team keeper Mandanda. The final score was 2–1 for Beşiktaş. The team kept the hopes until the last encounter against Porto to be qualified to 2nd Round. However, Beşiktaş could not manage to get a victory in Portugal and eliminated as the bottom team at the Group A.
He played an important role at Beşiktaş to win the Turkey Cup and Turkish Super League Cup in 2008–2009 season. He scored 11 goals in the Turkish Super League Cup making him the top scorer among Beşiktaş players. His contract expired in the end of the 2010/2011 season. After failed negotiations between club and player, Beşiktaş decided not to extend his contract. Previously the "agent" of the footballer, Pini Zahavi, had requested the club to pay €200,000 as transfer fee. However the club refused and the lawsuit of Zahavi was dismissed by FIFA and CAS.
On 5 August 2016, it was reported that he was in talks with Sydney FC in A-League to become their marquee player ahead of the 2016–17 season and on 17 August he signed a one-year contract with the A-League club worth approximately $1 million AUD.
Bobô started with a bang at Sydney FC, scoring on his debut in the FFA Cup against Blacktown City, and assisting 2 other goals in a 3-0 win . In his first A-League start, the Brazilian scored and assisted a goal in the Sydney Derby, a game they ended up 4-0 winners. His partnership up front with Filip Holosko, Milos Ninkovic, and Alex Brosque was fruitful, as Sydney scored 34 goals in 14 games.
On the 24th of February 2017, Bobô reached double digits for Sydney FC in a convincing 3-1 win against Melbourne City. A week later on the 3rd of March, Bobo scored a vital goal in the race for the 2016/17 A-League Premiership race. He tapped home a cross from Filip Holosko, to give Sydney FC a 1-0 win over rivals Melbourne Victory in the Big Blue.
Bobô finished the 2016/17 regular season with 15 goals, as Sydney FC claimed their first Premiership since 2009/10.
On 4 February 2008, he was called up to the Brazil national football team to face Ireland on 6 February, replacing the injured Alexandre Pato. However, he did not make his first international appearance as he remained on the substitute bench for the whole match.
