Some tremendous news emerged on Saturday as Sean Cox is said to have ‘regained consciousness’.
The Irishman was attending the first leg of Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final tie against Roma when he was assaulted outside the ground at Anfield, an attack that led to two Italian nationals being arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
The 53-year-old remained in a come since due to the viciousness of the attack back in April.
Manager Jurgen Klopp, captain Jordan Henderson and the club itself paid a series of tributes and well-wishes to Cox and his family.
Thankfully, per Electric.ie, Cox’s recovery from the traumatic attack is well underway.
The website said in a statement:
“Séan Cox continues to recover slowly in Beaumont Hospital Dublin. He suffered a severe bleed to the brain following a horrific assault outside Liverpool football stadium ahead of Champions League tie with AC Roma on April 24th.
Séan has regained consciousness and is undergoing dedicated rehabilitation. 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.”
Absolutely wonderful news this evening! Liverpool fan Sean Cox, who was brutally attacked at Anfield in April, has finally regained consciousness after entering a coma approximately 3 months ago. Thoughts are with him, his family and his friends this evening.

When Cox hopefully fully recovers, his return to his favourite ground of Anfield will be a significant, emotional one.
