Club careerEdit

Mamute made his professional debut at Grêmio in 2011. In 2014, he was loaned to Botafogo. He returned to the "Tricolor Gaúcho" in early 2015 and became a starter in the team under Luiz Felipe Scolari, going on to play a bigger role in the tactics of the squad during Roger Machado's tenure. However, an injury to his ankle ligaments in July 2015 was a key factor keeping him out of action for about a month. Following his return from injury, he struggled to regain a starting position in the squad.[1]

In January 2016, Panathinaikos and Grêmio confirmed a loan agreement was in place for Mamute who signed a half-year loan contract with the Greek club. The agreement included a fee of €100,000 for the first half season, rising to €200,000 if he were to play in the 2016–17 season. Panathinaikos secured the option to sign Mamute permanently either in the summer of 2016 for €4 million or at the end of the 18-month loan for €7 million.[2][3] After three months with the club, Mamute was reportedly not deemed to be a suitable replacement for previous striker Nikolaos Karelis and rumoured to return to Grêmio at the end of the season.[4]

In February 2017, Mamute went on trial with Kazakhstan Premier League side FC Aktobe,[5] signing for the club on loan, on 18 February 2017.[6]
