Touching tribute paid to Irish Liverpool fan Sean Cox after Reds seal first league title in 30 years

A TOUCHING tribute was paid to Irish Liverpool fan Sean Cox following confirmation of the club’s first league title in 30 years. 

The Reds claimed their first-ever Premier League crown after title rivals Manchester City lost 2-1 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, with Liverpool claiming the title with seven games to spare. 

An avid fan, Moore would have been no doubt watching the City game and ensuing celebrations alongside his family at home. 

The Meath man suffered life-altering brain injuries after he was viciously attacked outside Anfield in 2018 on the night of Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final clash with AS Roma. 

He’s been on the long road to recovery ever since, with the beloved father-of-three making significant enough strides to move home permanently with his family back in April.

Liverpool Football Club has spearheaded a series of charity initiatives designed to provide Cox and his family with essential support during his rehabilitation. 

And in the aftermath of Liverpool’s confirmation as league winners, CEO Peter Moore was keen to pay tribute to the Irishman 

Taking to Twitter, Moore wrote: “One man in Ireland is loving every moment of this…thinking of you this evening Sean. You’ll Never, Ever, Walk Alone. 

“Number 19 is finally here. It’s for our millions of fans, near and far…we miss you. It’s for the Reds that fell to the virus. 

“It’s for my dad, who first took me to Anfield in 1959. It’s for Sean Cox, smiling in Ireland right now. And it’s for the 96, who will never be forgotten.”

Many other fans echoed Moore’s sentiments, sending messages to Cox on Twitter via the hashtag #SeanCox on what will have been a memorable and emotional night for Sean and his family.
