There was a very touching moment captured at Anfield on Sunday as Sean Cox and Jürgen Klopp got to meet up again and the final time with Klopp as manager of Liverpool.

For those who don't know, Ashbourne, Co Meath native Sean Cox along with his brother Martin were attacked by Roma fans in Liverpool before Liverpool's Champions League semi-final in 2018 and Sean was left in a coma, suffering from a major head injury. Cox's recovery has been well documented and he has been a true inspiration for us all. Liverpool to their credit have done a lot for Sean and his family and they came through again.

Sean, his wife Martina and carer Eustina were all invited to be in attendance for Liverpool's 2-1 win over Brighton at Anfield on Easter Sunday. It was there that they got the opportunity to meet Jürgen Klopp for the final time as Liverpool manager. The footage of the encounter was shared online of Cox and Klopp sharing a very moving moment together, with Sean standing up himself to greet the German.


Liverpool and Klopp have both done an awful lot for the Cox family since the unfortunate incident. Hundreds of thousands of euros were raised to help the family with recovery costs and Liverpool have hosted the family to matches at Anfield on numerous occasions.

Family friend Stephen Felle spoke with the Independent in a pice written by Darragh Nolan and Conor Feehan and mentioned how supportive Klopp has been to the Cox family.

Jürgen’s taken huge personal interest in Sean’s story.

He’s been a genuinely interested party in Sean’s story and the club have a standing invitation for the last three or four years.

(Jürgen) really is a superb human being. For all the success he’s achieved and everything he’s done with Liverpool, his humanity and groundedness is shown time and time again, whether it’s Sean or in other situations

He’s just a very decent human being.

Liverpool also should be commended for the work they did to accommodate Sean Cox. Felle mentioned that the club mended the director's box at Anfield to make it easier for Cox to get around on his wheelchair.

They had to do mechanical work on one of the chairs just outside the director’s box so it can be taken out to allow Sean’s wheelchair to wheel out,

They’ve left the removable chair there since. Peter Moore was chief executive when Sean was attacked and he was great for us in terms of the initial fundraising we did.

A very classy gesture from the Reds and one they are rightfully being credited for.
