Video: Liam Henderson Produces Beautiful Assist On Hellas Verona Debut

Liam Henderson produced a beautiful assist on his Hellas Verona debut.

The Scottish midfielder last week sealed a move to Serie B side Hellas after his former club Bari ran into financial difficulties.

He only signed for Bari in January this year, going on to make 18 appearances for the club before the end of the season.

Bari were excluded from this coming season’s Serie B amid financial problems and that’s why Henderson was made available to anyone interested – and Hellas subsequently signed him on a four-year deal.

And now he can continue his Italian adventure after impressing in the first six months.

Manager Fabio Grosso – who actually signed Henderson at Bari – threw the former Celtic and Hibs man into the starting XI for the Coppa Italia clash with Juve Stabia on Sunday.

The midfielder repaid him with a quality performance in a 4-1 win, which included this beautiful assist for former Italy international Giampaolo Pazzini:

That is a perfect start for Henderson – and he’ll fancy his chances of playing Serie A football next season given how strong the recently-relegated Hellas are.
