Born in São João de Meriti, Rio de Janeiro, Juary started his career at Santos FC, being important as an 18-year-old to the club's 1978 conquest of the Paulistan League. He had his first spell abroad with Mexico's Leones Negros de Guadalajara, in the following year.
In 1980, Juary embarked on an Italian adventure that would last five seasons, as he mainly represented modest teams (U.S. Avellino, Ascoli Calcio 1898 and U.S. Cremonese – additionally, in 1982–83, he played with Inter Milan, scoring twice in Serie A).
Juary moved to Portugal and FC Porto, in the 1985 summer, serving as backup to club great Fernando Gomes. There, he achieved the greatest moment in his career when, on 27 May 1987, he came from the bench to net the decisive 2–1 against FC Bayern Munich in the 1986–87 European Cup final, assisted by Rabah Madjer who had just equalized the score.
However, Juary left Porto in the ensuing season, returning to his country with Associação Portuguesa de Desportos and moving back to Santos the following year, where he was not able to reproduce his previous form, finally retiring in 1990 with Moto Club, in São Luís, Maranhão.
In August 2007 Juary returned to Italy, being hired by S.S.C. Napoli as youth coach. In the following year, he filled the same position at former club Porto.
Juary was appointed as head coach of Eccellenza Basilicata amateurs Banzi in February 2009, but left only after two games (both ended in a loss), citing personal reasons that required his presence in Brazil.
