Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp Pays Tribute To Critically Injured Fan Sean Cox

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp paid tribute to Sean Cox as the Meath man remains in a critical condition in hospital.

Sean was set upon and attacked by several Roma fans outside Anfield ahead of Tuesday night’s Champions League semi-final at the same venue, for which charges have since been brought against the Italian perpetrators.

Liverpool players such as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and captain Jordan Henderson have already wished the 53-year-old well on social media, and Klopp echoed their sentiments on Friday in his press conference ahead of this weekend’s Premier LEague clash against Stoke City.

Wearing an Irish tricolour Liverpool badge, Klopp reflected on the incident and sent his thoughts and prayers to Sean’s family.

Liverpool have requested a meeting with Roma, UEFA and Italian authorities on Friday as they look to implement increased security measures in Roma next Wednesday, to ensure that there is not a repeat of Tuesday’s incident and to preserve the safety of the 5,000 Reds fans making the trip to the Italian capital.
