Jurgen Klopp spoke very well during his press-conference today ahead of Saturday’s Stoke clash.
The manager immediately discussed Sean Cox, the Liverpool fan currently fighting for his life after a horrible, unprovoked attack by Roma thugs before Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final.
“The game on Tuesday showed the beauty of the game, what happened before was ugly face,” he said. “When I heard, I can’t describe my emotions. It should never happen. It’s unbelievable. All our thoughts & prayers are with Sean Cox and his family.”
He also wore a LiverBird with the Irish colours on, in a sign of support that will no doubt mean a lot to Sean’s family.
At Empire of the Kop, we send our thoughts to his loved ones and implore Sean to keep fighting.
Thousands of pounds have already been raised to the Sean Cox fund to help his medical fees and his family’s expenses.
