Heartwarming news

Liverpool fan Sean Cox will make his Anfield return when the Reds face off against Manchester City on Sunday, following 18 months of rehabilitation.

Sean was the victim of an unprovoked attack from Roma fans back in April 2018.

Liverpool faced off against the Serie A side in the Champions League semi-final, in which they won 5-2.

Though, after being struck on the head by an opposition fan outside Anfield, Sean has been forced to undergo intensive rehabilitation and therapy over the past 18 months due to brain injuries.

Cox was recently able to watch a Liverpool Legends game over in Ireland, in a fixture which raised money for the Sean Cox rehabilitation trust.

However, the Liverpool fan is now set to return to Anfield this Sunday when his side face off against Manchester City.

during the UEFA Champions League Semi Final Second Leg match between A.S. Roma and Liverpool at Stadio Olimpico on May 2, 2018 in Rome, Italy.

The news was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon when the ‘Support Sean’ Twitter page confirmed he and his family would be attending the game.

Sean’s wife Martina also revealed the news on the Pat Kenny Show, as cited by the Mirror. 

“We’re getting him there, and that’s a really positive thing for him – I think it will be great for him,” she explained.

“Liverpool have been amazing, and they’ve really come on board. Obviously they had the [charity] game in the Aviva… so I reckon they’ll be pulling out all the stops for Sean.

“It will give him a boost, I think, on Sunday.”

The wonderful news will no doubt give everyone involved with Liverpool Football Club a boost ahead of the clash this weekend.
