Born in Lourinhã, Lisbon District, Alexandre started his professional career with S.L. Benfica, but could never amass any official appearances for the first team. From 2004 to 2006 he played with the club's B-side (soon to be extinct) and in the second division, with capital neighbours C.D. Olivais e Moscavide.
After one season in the third level with C.D. Mafra – also in the region – Alexandre moved to C.F. Estrela da Amadora, again in the capital but now in the Primeira Liga. He was an essential figure in midfield, as the club finished in a comfortable mid-table position in spite of serious financial difficulties.
In late June 2009, after Estrela was relegated off-court, Alexandre moved to S.C. Braga in a free transfer. He still participated in one league match with the Minho team, playing 25 minutes in a 2–1 win at Sporting Clube de Portugal but, just hours before the August transfer window closed, was sent on loan to Leixões S.C. also in the top flight, remaining in that predicament for the following two years but with S.C. Olhanense.
On 4 July 2013, Académica de Coimbra completed the signing of Alexandre, with the free agent penning a one-year contract and reuniting with former Olhanense manager Sérgio Conceição. He was regularly used in the following top division campaigns, scoring three goals from 27 games in 2015–16 but being relegated.
