Sean Cox overjoyed by Liverpool’s Champion’s League triumph
Irishman released from National Rehabilitation Hospital to watch match with family
Sean Cox suffered serious injury after he was attacked at random by an AS Roma supporter outside Anfield last year.
He joined his family in an emotional rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone after Liverpool’s 2-0 victory and returned to hospital elated.
Mr Cox suffered a serious brain injury in an attack by an Italian hooligan last year.
His wife Martina Cox said: “The club and its fans have taken Sean, our family and I, into their hearts since Sean’s attack last year.
“Nobody could be happier than the Cox family for Jurgen Klopp, his players and the wonderful Liverpool fans.
“Sean watched the game with us at home, proudly wearing a signed Liverpool jersey sent to him by the club’s CEO Peter Moore last week.
“He was overjoyed when the final whistle blew and Liverpool were crowned champions.”
Mr Cox (54) who continues his rehabilitation in hospital in Dun Laoghaire, near Dublin, is a former company director.
Mr Cox’s wife added: “On Sean’s behalf, I want to offer our heartfelt congratulations to Liverpool Football Club on winning the Champions League.”
Tens of thousands of fans recently descended on the Aviva Stadium in Dublin to raise money for the injured fan’s treatment.
The Legends For Sean Cox match, organised by his beloved Anfield side, saw Liverpool FC Legends take on a Republic of Ireland XI Legends team to raise money for The Sean Cox Rehabilitation Trust. – PA
