Tremendous to see improvement in the mans condition. But the amount of time away from family, in hospital, unable to function properly must take its toll.
His tale is a cautionary one, we go to the match when we can, to see the game we love. No one deserves to go home like that.
Jürgen Klopp on Sean Cox: "It was nice to see him. He was very happy to see me, but I thought I was happier to see him. It was a draw! It was really important news when the boys found out he was able to come to watch a game. A wonderful day for him and his family."
Life altering injuries for going to a football match. I recognise how his health has improved but it is heartbreaking to see the poor guy in a wheelchair and so obviously affected by his injuries.
His wife spoke eloquently, and was obviously taken by the generosity of supporters, club and others.
They still have quite a journey to go, YNWA Sean.
Genuinely shocked to see how badly injured the poor guy still is. To think this all happened just because he supported a different team to the scum bag who did this to him. I hope he’s having a suitably shit time in the Uk prison system. I suspect there are a few lfc fans in there who will know who he is.
It was so lovely to see Sean Cox and his family at Anfield. It was also heart breaking as well. I am so glad the club announced his presence at the match.
Hopefully, Sean will get better and better and get back to normal way of life with his physio therapy.
Don´t know if it is the right place or better part of the Klopp thread - Found an article with parts of an interview with Kloppo before the City game: Some translations...
"When this happened, it was my worst moment in Liverpool. Something like that shouldn't generally happen in life or around a soccer game."
"I hope I can see him before the game. I really want to do that," Klopp explained. "We not only sing 'You'll never walk alone', we also live it."
"I hope the love Sean has for his football team has given him strength. He still has a long way to go," Klopp said. "One of my highlights is that he wants to come back and watch a game. I'm really looking forward to it. I hope we can arrange a meeting before the game."
More than €420,000 was raised for Sean Cox when some of Britain and Ireland’s top comedians played a benefit gig for the Liverpool fan at Dublin’s 3 Arena.
John Bishop, Michael McIntyre, Tommy Tiernan, Jason Byrne, Des Bishop, Deirdre O’Kane, Dara Ó Briain and Joanne McNally were among some of the partcipants.
The show ended with the performers and crowd singing an emotional version of You’ll Never Walk Alone.
Bishop - a lifelong Liverpool fan, organised the gig for Sean.
"Sean Cox was just like any other football fan – an ordinary man on his way to watch his team playing a big game,” he told the Irish Independent.
Then this brutal attack happened and changed his life forever. It could have been any of us.”
