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he returned to Brazil on personal business but on returning to the UK was refused entry as his Portuguese passport had been revoked.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.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Sérgio was born on this date in Juiz de Fora, Brazil.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    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.

  • Sergio Henriques Games, hereafter known as plain Sergio, may not have found the net as the Brazilian made his United debut, but his presence for 62 minutes added a new dimension to United's play which eventually overran a beleaguered Motherwell side. Billy McKinlay was the other change in the Tannadice line-up and he was perhaps primarily instrumental in influencing the tangerine's best performance of the season.

  • Following Tuesday's narrow victory over Falkirk, Manager Ivan Golac stuck by the same starting eleven against Thistle.

  • Billy Kirkwood filled the voids left by David Hannah's suspension and Craig Brewster's injury by bringing in Christian Dailly and Sergio. Given the threat of relegation and a pitch which became firmer as the afternoon wore on, this proved to be an entertaining game and one which at the interval, United looked well capable of winning.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 0 - 1 Celtic

    United's last match of the season also proved to be a hopefully temporary adieu to two decades of Premier division football. As it turned out the defeat by Celtic was academic for survival hopes with results elsewhere confirming our relegation fate.
