Injured Liverpool fan Sean Cox to begin rehabilitation treatment in England

Sean Cox,the Irishman who suffered severe injuries in an unprovoked attack in Liverpool last April, will begin rehabilitation in England next week.

Mr Cox, a 54-year-old father of three from Dunboyne, Co Meath was injured before the 2018 Champions League semi-final at Anfield.

Three men are currently serving separate jail sentences for the attack.

After almost 18 months of treatment in Ireland, Mr Cox is being transported to a specialist neurological facility in the north of England for an initial 12-week rehabilitation programme focused on developing his speech and movement.

His wife Martina Cox said:

Sean has made progress over the past 18 months but it is extremely slow.

Mr Cox and his family will return to Anfield to watch a Liverpool match in October.

The Support Sean campaign will host a show in January 2020 in the Three Arena, Dublin in order to raise funds for his future care.
