Otero returns to the Brazilian first division where he arrived in 2016 with Atlético Mineiro, a team to which he belonged for five seasons and won the regional championship titles in 2017 and 2020, the year he moved to Corinthians where he stayed for two seasons more with good rhythm of personal game.
