Born in Salvador, Bahia, Denilson moved abroad at the age of 20. He was, however, limited to reserve team football with both Feyenoord and Paris Saint-Germain FC, and signed with Portuguese club C.F. União de Lamas in January 1998.
After six years in the United Arab Emirates, mainly at the service of Al Shabab (Dubai), and a brief stint in the Liga MX with Club Atlas, Denilson joined South Korea's Daejeon Citizen F.C. initially on a three-month contract, returning later for one 1/2 years. He helped fellow K-League team Pohang Steelers finish third at the 2009 FIFA Club World Cup, scoring four goals in three games.
On 29 December 2009 Denilson signed for FC Bunyodkor in Uzbekistan, partnering Rivaldo at that and his following club, Mogi Mirim Esporte Clube. He continued playing well into his 30's, making his debut in the Série B at the age of 35 with Guarani Futebol Clube.
