Club career

Early years / Sevilla

Renato was born in Santa Mercedes, São Paulo. In 2004, after playing in his country with Guarani Futebol Clube and Santos FC, he signed for Sevilla FC in Spain, aged 25. Alongside compatriots Adriano Correia and Daniel Alves, as well as several club youth graduates, he would play an essential part in the Andalusians' La Liga consolidation, making his competition debut on 29 August: after just one minute on the pitch, in the start of the second half of the home fixture against Albacete Balompié, he scored the game's only goal.

From 2005 to 2007 Renato played 16 UEFA Cup games in both seasons combined, as Sevilla won the tournament twice in a row. His only goal was a decisive one, as he scored in the 2–0 home win against CA Osasuna in the second leg of the semifinals of the 2006–07 edition (2–1 on aggregate); he was also utilized in both finals.

In the 2008–09 season Renato netted eight goals in 32 matches, as Sevilla finished in third position. Four of those came from December 2008 to January 2009, against Real Madrid (4–3 win, away[1]), Villarreal CF (1–0, at home[2]), Deportivo de La Coruña (3–1 triumph, away) and CD Numancia (1–0, at home[3]).

On 4 October 2009, Renato scored through a header in a 2–1 home win against Real Madrid.[4] He contributed with 33 games and four goals to Sevilla's fourth-place finish, with the subsequent qualification to the UEFA Champions League. At the season's closure he extended his link to the club for a further year, until June 2012.[5]

Botafogo

On 26 May 2011 Renato rescinded his deal with Sevilla by mutual agreement, and signed a three-year contract with Botafogo de Futebol e Regatas.[6]

He was a regular starter during his first two years at the club, forming a strong midfield unit alongside internationals Clarence Seedorf and Nicolás Lodeiro, but later served as a backup to Gabriel; he was also marred by injuries during the 2013 season.[7]

Santos return

On 13 May 2014 Renato left Botafogo and returned to Santos, signing a deal until the end of the campaign.[8] He was named among the substitutes two days later, but remained unused during the 4–2 home win against Princesa do Solimões Esporte Clube.

After struggling with injuries, Renato was mainly used as a backup to Arouca and Alison, playing as a defensive midfielder. On 13 January 2015, despite appearing in only 14 matches after his return, he renewed his link for a further year.[9]

International career

Renato made his debut for Brazil in 2003, being picked for the squads at the 2004 Copa América and the 2005 FIFA Confederations Cup: in the former he played all six matches – all minutes – and made five substitute appearances in the latter,[10] with the national side winning both competitions.
