Club career[edit]

Giovane joined Sun Hei in 2007.[1] He came to prominence the season after and bested fellow Brazilian Detinho to become the top scorer of that season with 26 goals.[2] He became considered one of the best foreign players of the league after this achievement.[3] He left the club to try pursuing a career in Europe but failed to land a contract, joining Brazilian clubs Brusque and Atlético Ibirama after.In 2010, he joined Guangdong Sunray Cave[4][5],scoring 12 goals in 23 games. In December 2010 he returned to Hong Kong joining South China, scoring in his debut against Tuen Mun resulting in a 4–1 victory for his side.[6] In 2012, he joined Biu Chun Rangers enjoying a fruitful spell.[7] However, he was not kept as the club thinks he does not suit their playing style.

In 2013, he joined Eastern and led the club in scoring for each of his four seasons at the club.

ON 27 June 2017, R&F vice chairman Wong Sing Wah announced that his club had signed Giovane.[8]
