Born in Paris, France, Alemão started his professional career with Sporting Clube de Portugal after emerging through the Lisbon club's youth ranks. He would only, however, appear for the B-side during his spell, meeting the same fate in 2003–04 with C.S. Marítimo – both teams operated in the third division.
In the following two-and-a-half seasons, Alemão stayed in that level, playing for Sport Benfica e Castelo Branco and G.D. Tourizense. In January 2007 he was signed by U.D. Leiria in the Primeira Liga, but only managed to be third-choice during his tenure.
Alemão moved to C.D. Santa Clara from division two for the 2008–09 campaign, starting ahead of longtime incumbent João Botelho. In the following year he had his first experience abroad, leaving for Cypriot Second Division club Atromitos Yeroskipou.
