The Irish Liverpool F.C fan Sean Cox was flown back to Ireland last week to continue his recovery from injuries he sustained in a vicious assault ahead of the Champions League semi-final against Roma.

Sean, who has worked for many years at Dundalk based company Precision Cables, is reported to have been transferred to Beaumont Hospital, where he still remains in a serious condition after suffering severe head injuries during the brutal assault

A source close to Liverpool FC has confirmed Mr Cox has returned to Ireland.

Sean, who is originally from Dunboyne, County Meath underwent emergency surgery on a bleed to the brain that occurred when he was the victim of an unprovoked attack orchestrated by Roma fans outside Anfield on April 24th.

Liverpool's first squad and the club's supporters across the globe have contributed to a 'go fund me' fundraiser that has raised €90,000 towards the costs of Mr Cox's medical treatment.

There has been widespread support from across the globe for Sean Cox, and his family, with donations and well wishes coming froma s far away ast the United States

Italian football fans Daniele Sciusco and Filippo Lombardi have since been charged by Merseyside police in relation to the attack.
