Renato started his career in Esportivo in Bento Gonçalves where he grew up. He was later signed with Grêmio, where in 1983 he won the Copa Libertadores, beating Peñarol of Uruguay, and the Intercontinental Cup, beating Hamburger SV of Germany, and scoring twice.[1]

In 1987 he moved to Flamengo and won the Green Module of Brasileirão Série A in the same year. Then in 1988 Renato moved abroad, signing with Roma. However, he failed to settle in Italy and returned to Flamengo after only one disappointing season, in time to win one more trophy, the Copa do Brasil in 1990.

Renato's career in Fluminense is generally associated to his belly goal in the Campeonato Carioca of 1995, against Flamengo, in the year when Flamengo celebrated 100 years. With his goal he was crowned the King of Rio in that year. In the same year, he led Fluminense to the semi-finals of the Brasileirão Série A.

Brazil national team

Renato Gaúcho appeared 41 times for the Brazilian national team, scoring five goals.[2]

In 1986, while preparing for the FIFA World Cup Finals in Mexico, Renato was dropped from the squad by coach Telê Santana for disciplinary reasons, primarily partying late and missing training. As a result, his team-mate and close friend Leandro also withdrew from the squad on the eve of Brazil's departure for Mexico. Leandro's replacement at right-back was Edson, who was injured in the second World Cup match and was then replaced by the relatively unknown Josimar of Botofogo, who became one of the stars of the tournament.

His sacking followed an 2–1 defeat to the Brasileirão's bottom side, Ipatinga which left them joint-bottom of the table.[5] On September 18, 2008, he was hired as Vasco's manager.[6] Fluminense have hired former Vasco da Gama coach Renato Gaúcho on July 21, 2009 he replaces Carlos Alberto Parreira, who was sacked in July 2009, Renato has already coached Fluminense twice before (in 2002–2003 and again in 2007–2008).[7] On September 1, 2009 Fluminense club officials have fired the coach due to poor results.

Fortunately, in the 2010 Brazilian League Grêmio ended in 4th place and consequently qualified to 2011 Copa Libertadores. Afterward, Renato did not do a great season on 2011. His team lost the 2011 Campeonato Gaúcho finals to their rival Internacional and was the runner-up. Grêmio was also eliminated from the 2011 Copa Libertadores on the Round of 16, losting to Chilean club Universidad Católica. All of that disappointed himself and Grêmio's President Paulo Odone.
