It followed by an investigation of Italian police, and found 2 more teammate namely Jorginho Paulista and Alejandro Da Silva were using fake passport. It is because Serie A restricted each club could only had 5 non-European Union footballers and 3 in each match, a fake passport could increase their chance to win a contract with Italian club. However, that season Alberto played 27 league matches and scored 2 goals, as the quota system was abolished in the mid of season. In June 2001, Alberto, along with a dozen other including 3 of Alberto's teammate, were banned, 10 of them including Alberto for a year and 3 youth players for 6 months. but allowed to remain at Italy. The ban was later reduced. On 14 April 2002, he played his first league match after the ban, but replaced by Siyabonga Nomvethe at half-time. The match Udinese lost 0–1 to Verona.
The then played 2 more seasons, for Udinese.
In January 2005, after just played 2 league matches for the Udine club, he joined another Serie A side Siena. In July 2005, Siena signed him from Udinese in co-ownership deal. He played 31 league matches that season for the Serie A struggler and the Tuscany side choose to sign him permanently in 2006. But in 2006–07 season, he just played 10 starts in 16 Serie A appearances and in 2007–08 season with only 2 starts.
Return to BrazilEdit
In September 2008, he signed a 1+1⁄2-year contract with Club Athletico Paranaense but only played 8 matches in national leagues.
