Nicknamed after boxer Acelino Freitas by his mother's neighbor, Werik Popó was rejected by a number of clubs before joining Oeste's youth setup in 2020. In 2021, he moved on loan to Águia de Marabá on loan for the 2021 Campeonato Paraense, and made his senior debut with the club.

Definitely promoted to the main squad, Werik Popó scored his first senior goal on 19 February 2022, netting a last-minute winner in a 2–1 Campeonato Paulista Série A2 away win over XV de Piracicaba. On 2 March, he scored a brace in a 3–1 win at Red Bull Brasil.
