After a season with China League One club Xinjiang Tianshan Leopard, Itaparica decided to return to Hong Kong. He signed with HKPL side Tai Po on 30 December 2016.[4] On 18 March, Itaparica collided with a Southern player during a Premier League match. He sprained his right knee and was subsequently ruled out for six weeks.[5] He returned in time for Tai Po's Sapling Cup Final match against Pegasus on 3 May during which he won his first trophy since returning to Hong Kong.

R&F[edit]

In July 2017, the South China Morning Post reported that Itaparica would join R&F.[6]

On 19 June 2019, head coach Yeung Ching Kwong revealed that Itaparica would not be retained.[7] He announced his retirement from football after the season on 30 August 2019.

International career[edit]

Itaparica was born and raised in Brazil. In September 2014, Itaparica applied for the HKSAR passport and was granted one on 4 November 2015. As a result, he became eligible to play for the Hong Kong national team. On 31 December 2015, he earned his first cap for the national team during the 38th Guangdong–Hong Kong Cup, an unofficial tournament.
