Last night was a special night for lifelong Liverpool FC fan Seán Cox as he watched his beloved Reds crowned European Champions in Madrid. Seán was discharged from the National Rehabilitation Hospital for the evening, getting to see the game at his home in Dunboyne surrounded by a small number of family and friends. An overjoyed Seán joined his family in an emotional rendition of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” after Liverpool’s 2-0 victory and returned to hospital elated.

Seán's wife Martina said: “On Seán’s behalf, I want to offer our heartfelt congratulations to Liverpool Football Club on winning the Champions League. The Club and its fans have taken Seán, our family and me into their hearts since Sean’s attack last year. Nobody could be happier than the Cox family for Jurgen Klopp, his players and the wonderful Liverpool fans. Sean watched the game with us at home, proudly wearing a signed Liverpool jersey sent to him by Club CEO Peter Moore last week. He was overjoyed when the final whistle blew and Liverpool were crowned champions”.
