Vasco da Gama
Wescley started his career playing for Vasco da Gama, after being promoted from the club's youth squad. Earlier in the 2003 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A season, he was promoted to the club's first team squad, playing several games for the club and scoring a goal in the second match of the competition, against Goiás.
Stint in Israel
Before arriving in Israel, a lot of media attention was paid to Wescley since he was signing with Maccabi Haifa and was expected to be their leader for the future. Wescley had the credentials especially since he was captain of the Brazilian Olympic team but was unable to acclimate to Israeli culture and ended leaving after a mediocre first season.
Return to Brazil
He returned to Brazil in 2005, to play for Corinthians, where he won the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A of that year, playing for Estrela da Amadora of Portugal in the following year. Wescley played for Juventude during the Série A 2007, but was unable to prevent his club from being relegated to the second level. In 2008, he joined Criciúma.
