As Sporting Clube de Portugal was coached by John Toshack, Litos made his first-team debuts at the age of 17. His best individual season would be precisely his first – 28 matches, six goals, even reaching the Portuguese national team – and he remained an important member of the main squad in the following years.
Litos left the Lions in 1992, and represented, without much success at least in his country's Primeira Liga, Boavista FC, S.C. Braga, G.D. Estoril Praia, US Lusitanos Saint-Maur (third level, in France) and Atlético Clube de Portugal. He retired from the game in 1999, aged 32.
Litos began a coaching career in 2004, starting with former club Estoril and not being able to prevent relegation from the top flight. In the 2009–10 campaign, he led Portimonense S.C. back to the top division after a two-decade absence.
Litos was fired by Portimonense in late December 2010, as the Algarve side ranked second from the bottom in the league. Shortly after he signed for Leixões S.C. in division two, leaving the club on 14 February 2012.
Starting in 2012, Litos went on to spend several seasons in the Moçambola with Liga Muçulmana de Maputo. In February 2016, he returned his country and its second tier, leaving Clube Oriental de Lisboa's bench after less than one month alleging personal reasons.
