Born in Guimarães, Monteiro finished his formation at S.C. Braga, making his senior debuts with the reserve team in the third division. On 5 November 2005 he played his first official game with the main squad, replacing club captain Paulo Jorge in the 30th minute of a 0–1 away loss against C.S. Marítimo; it would be his only Primeira Liga appearance.
From 2006 to 2008, Monteiro played abroad, but only managed to appear in two league matches combined for FC Istres (Ligue 2), FC Farul Constanţa (Liga I) and Charlton Athletic in the Football League Championship. During his spell with the Addicks he was also pursued by lowly Accrington Stanley, but the deal fell through due to lack of international clearance, and he was released in July 2008 without any official appearances.
Returned to his country, Monteiro played four seasons in the third level, with Amarante FC, Gondomar SC, S.C. Praiense and S.C. Espinho. He joined division two side C.D. Santa Clara in 2012–13, moving to fellow league team Académico de Viseu FC for the following campaign.
