Jordan Henderson sends classy letter to Sean Cox's GAA club on behalf of Liverpool teammates
A lovely touch...
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has sent a letter to Sean Cox's GAA club, St Peters Dunboyne in Meath expressing their solidarity with them at his difficult time.
In the letter, Henderson states that everyone in Liverpool knows that Sean had at least one other big sporting love apart from LFC, and that is his GAA club.
The letter from Henderson is below in full...
"To our friends at St Peters GAA, Dunboyne,
"I am writing on behalf of the entire first team squad at Liverpool Football Club to thank you for generously sending us a jersey of your team.
"We all know that our supporter Sean Cox has at least one other big sporting love in his life, aside from LFC and it's St Peters GAA.
"The situation Sean and his family are facing now makes something like playing football look as trivial as you could imagine, but as a group of players we wanted to show our support and we thought having your clubs' jersey hanging alongside ours in the dressing room was a subtle way of doing that. We know it's a small gesture from us in the grand scheme of things, but nonetheless, thank you for for helping us make it happen."
"I've never had the privilege to meet Sean, but in recent days I've been reading in the media about how much he's loved and respected in the community of Dunboyne and in particular the important role he plays at your club.
"Please accept, on behalf of the Liverpool first team players, a signed shirt from us, by means of expressing our solidarity with you at this very difficult time
"Our greatest wish in this moment is that Sean can return home with his family and see that the two sporting clubs he cherishes the most came together because of him.
"You'll Never Walk Alone,
Sean was hospitalised with serious head injuries after a brutal assault by some Roma fans on his way to Anfield for last week's Champions League semi-final at the ground.
Cox remains in a critical condition at Walton Neurological Centre in Liverpool following the serious assault.
In the days since then, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp spoke about the incident and offered his support to the Cox family, and during a press conference, could be seen sporting an Irish tricolour on his jumper in support of the critically ill Irishman.
