Sean Cox's family release moving statement thanking the 'huge number of messages and support'
"The level of support from so many is overwhelming."
Liverpool booked their place in the Champions League final following a whirlwind match against Roma but amidst the celebrations and euphoria, Klopp's men paid tribute to Sean Cox after the Irishman was viciously attacked at Anfield prior to kick-off in the first leg.
During the build-up to the game at the Stadio Olimpico, everyone associated with Roma and Liverpool had the Irishman in their thoughts and after a trying week for his family, Mr Cox's family have released a very moving statement via St. Peter's GAA Club.
Here's the statement in full:
The past week has been a very difficult one for Sean, his family, his large circle of friends and his colleagues at St. Peter's GAA Club, as Sean remains in a critical condition.
As a club, and on behalf of Sean’s family, we would like to express our appreciation for the huge number of messages and gestures of support from across our local community and beyond. The level of support from so many is overwhelming and I know this provides some comfort to Sean’s family at this time.
We would like to acknowledge the heartfelt support received from Liverpool and Roma Football Clubs. We have been touched by their solidarity and its sincerity over the past week and it has meant a great deal to both St Peters and Sean’s family.
Sean, a hugely popular and respected individual, is a driving force in St Peters and it is hard to fully convey the positive impact that he has in our club.
We would ask that you keep Sean, Martina, and Sean’s family in your thoughts and prayers.
Finally, we would also appreciate that space and privacy be afforded to Sean and his family as they focus their efforts on Sean’s recovery.
(Chairman, on behalf of St Peters GAA Club Dunboyne)
