Rildo was a contemporary of Pelé, Coutinho and Clodoaldo in Peixe, a team he defended between 1967 and 1972: he won the São Paulo three-time championship (1967/68/69) and in 1968 he won the Supercopa-Sul Americana, Recopa Intercontinental and Torneio Gomes Pedrosa. The player started his career at Íbis, in Pernamubo, in 1959. He also played for Sport and Botafogo.

The left-back also played for the Brazilian team in the 1966 FA Cup. He was called up several times between 1963 and 1969, and even disputed the position with Nilton Santos (Botafogo).
