He moved to Italy in 1992, where he played for Cagliari, Fiorentina, Bologna, Como, Catania, Foggia, Venezia and Lucchese, becoming famous in his early years at Cagliari and Fiorentina as a prolific and effective Serie A striker.
In 2006, he accepted to play Nuorese of Serie C2/A, also in order to get closer to his family (his wife in Sardinia). In 2008, following the disbandment of his club, he agreed for a move to Serie D team Derthona.
In July 2009, Oliveira moved back to Sardinia, joining Eccellenza club Muravera, a club from his wife's hometown. He retired in 2010 at the age of 41.
He successfully passed the category 2 (UEFA A) coaching exam in June 2011 in Italy. In March 2012 he returned to Muravera, this time as head coach for the remaining four games of the season. He was confirmed as Muravera coach also for the 2012–13 season, in which he led his small club to triumph in the Coppa Italia Eccellenza.
On 1 August 2014, it was announced Oliveira would become the new head coach of Lega Pro club Pro Patria with immediate effect, but he was dismissed on 4 November 2014 after managing just one win in 11 matches.
