Biography


Beginning his career with Tupi FC in the city of Juiz de Fora, Sergio moved to Portugal in 1991 to play for Amora. He came to Tannadice midway through the 1994-95 season, and along with Uruguayan Juan Ferreri, had trials with the reserves before signing for United for a reported £300,000.

He became the first Brazilian to play in Scottish football when he made his debut in the 6-1 demolition of Motherwell in January 1995. He was in the line-up frequently during the rest of the season, quickly becoming a favourite with the fans, but never really making the expected impact.

After United's relegation from the Premier Division, he returned to Brazil on personal business but on returning to the UK was refused entry as his Portuguese passport had been revoked. In December 1995 United sold him to Kazma Sporting Club of Kuwait for an undisclosed fee.
