Roma fans attacked Liverpool supporters, Sean Cox in Anfield before the kick-off of their semi-final first leg in April causing the Irishman serious injury which left him in a coma for weeks after a surgery to address a bleed on his brain.

The 53-year old father of three Cox has since been taken back to Ireland but still remains in a critical condition.
