CareerEdit

On 20 May 2016, after 8 years with Atromitos, Eduardo Brito signed a contract of additional one year in presence of the technical director Giannis Aggelopoulos. Right after commented to atromitosfc.gr the following : "At first I want to express my joy because I feel that am staying at my "home". It is true that my representative received offers from three clubs but I had made my words clear from the first moments that only when my abeyance with Atromitos had ended I would start the process of conversations. In my mind there wasn't any second thought. I have many things to give to the team, we have many things to achieve as a team. Atromitos is my second "home" and I feel it like family. I have a great love relation with our fans. I want to thank the president Mr. Giorgos Spanos for the love that shows to me all these years and also to the technical director Mr. Giannis Aggelopoulos for the support that make me feel important for Atromitos. I want also to thank our coach Mr. Giorgos Paraschos for the trust and the team manager Mr. Spyros Sofianos with which I have a great collaboration from 2008 , the year that came to the team." [2] On 14 April 2017 he solved his contract with the club.[3] Eduardo Brito had 287 appearances (39 goals, 29 assists) in all competitions with the club.

On 27 July 2017, Brito returned to Apollon Pontou for third time in his career, after almost 10 years. The 34-year old Brazilian midfielder signed a year contract for an undisclosed fee.[4]
