Fernando joined French Ligue 1 side FC Girondins de Bordeaux in summer 2005, on loan from A.C. Siena. He made the move permanent a year later. He played an important role as Bordeaux finished runners-up for the 2005–06 Ligue 1 season, and qualified for the 2006–07 UEFA Champions League season.
In the summer of 2007, despite several of his teammates leaving the club, such as Julien Faubert, Stéphane Dalmat, Rio Antonio Mavuba, and Vladimír Šmicer, he signed a new improved four-year contract with Bordeaux. He also played for the Brazil national football team when they won the 2007 Copa America.
He was signed by Club Brugge in June 2014 again at the request of coach Michel Preud'homme. He left the club in December 2014.
