Christian started his career at Brazil, where he played for Tuna Luso, Time Negra, Goiatuba, Evangélica, Castanhal and Grêmio Anápolis. When he was 18 years old, he was scouted and trialled at Sport Club Internacional, but when he turned 19, they thought he was too old for improvement. During his time in Evangélica, he played for free in order to attract interest from bigger teams. His football skills impressed the technical director of Grêmio Anápolis, Marco Aurelio and Teixeira and offered him a place in their squad in 2012, but his move was delayed for one year due to an injury problem. Being a player of Grêmio Anápolis he attracted interest from nine European clubs, but only APOEL made an offer for him, when he impressed Portuguese manager, Paulo Sérgio Bento Brito.
On 20 June 2013, he moved abroad for the first time and joined Cypriot side APOEL, on a season-long loan deal from Grêmio Anápolis. He made his APOEL debut against NK Maribor at GSP Stadium on 31 July 2013, in a 1–1 first leg draw for the third qualifying round of the 2013–14 UEFA Champions League. His first career title came on 17 August 2013, after APOEL beat Apollon Limassol 1–0 at GSP Stadium to win the 2013 Cypriot Super Cup, with Christian playing the whole game in a left back position. During his six-month spell at APOEL, Christian also appeared in four league matches, one Cup match, two Champions League qualifying matches, two Europa League qualifying matches and three UEFA Europa League group stage matches, without scoring any goal.
