Started his successful journey in soccer as a defensive midfielder in Internacional, moving to the right-back position in 1984 by late coach, Ênio Andrade. Having changed his position, Winck quickly improved his performance, winning the most important award in Brazil run by sports magazine Placar (Bola de Prata) as the best player in his position that year (he would conquer the prize again in 1987).
In 1996, he retired while playing in São José-RS. Then he became coach, for teams such as São José itself, Grêmio Coariense, São Raimundo and Sampaio Correa. He is currently with River Atlético Clube.
