Roma To Donate Proceeds From Initiative Towards Sean Cox Rehab

Roma To Donate Proceeds From Initiative Towards Sean Cox Rehab

Over 19 months after Sean Cox was attacked by AS Roma fans outside Anfield, fundraising efforts continue in a bid to support the Meath man's rehabilitation.

There have been plenty of imaginative initiatives over the last year-and-a-half as efforts have been made to raise much needed funds for the Liverpool fan's continued rehabilitation, but the latest one has come via the Italian club whose fans attacked Cox before the Champions League semi-final.

The Italian club have announced that they are teaming up with Bands FC, a Twitter account that pairs the names of music artists with football crests, to raise money for various causes. Over the Christmas period they will produce "a collection of music-inspired t-shirts, hoodies and sweatshirts" that can be bought online here.

All proceeds from Day One of the initiative will be donated to the Sean Cox Rehabilitation Trust.

While Cox's family have said he has made progress in his rehabilitation, they also claim that there is still a long way to go on his road to recovery.

Cox returned to Anfield for the first time since the brutal incident last month for Liverpool's clash with Manchester City, with Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool players meeting the Irish man for the first time after the game.
