Sean Cox regains consciousness following Anfield attack in April

Posted by

Liverpool fan Sean Cox has reportedly woken from his induced coma three months after being brutally attacked outside Anfield.

The father-of-three was the victim of a violent assault prior to Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final first leg against Roma on April 24.

Cox has been receiving full-time care at Beaumont Hospital back home in Ireland since May and is now undergoing rehabilitation after regaining consciousness, according to electrical industry website

The statement reads: “Recovery is progressing positively but very slowly.”

“His colleagues in Precision Cables are overwhelmed by the support and good wishes for Séan and his family that they receive on a daily basis.”

“They would like once again to ask that you keep him in your prayers and that he will continue on his road to recovery.”

21-year-old Filippo Lombardi has pleaded not guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm, whilst 29-year-old Daniele Sciusco has admitted violent disorder.

An incredible show of support for Cox and his family during this difficult time has seen over €90,000 raised for medical fees.

Tributes have been paid to Sean both on and off the pitch, with the Reds holding a banner in his honour after their Champions League semi-final second-leg against Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.

The flag, reading “Sean Cox – You’ll Never Walk Alone”, was created by Peter Carney, who was joined by Spirit of Shankly’s Stephen Monaghan in travelling to Ireland to present it as a gift to Sean’s family.

We wish Sean all the very best as he continues his recovery.
