We wouldn’t get that facility back home here in Ireland. The facilities are wonderful. Liverpool fan Sean Cox’s return to Anfield this Sunday is ‘another milestone in his journey’, his brother Martin has told talkSPORT.Cox will visit the Reds’ famous stadium this weekend for the first time since he was attacked by a group of Roma supporters in April 2018.The Irishman was left with severe brain injuries in the assault.The club have supported the Irishman throughout his recovery and recent rehabilitation, with a Liverpool legends charity match in Dublin in April this year raising £640,000 for the Sean Cox Rehabilitation Trust.

It’s going in the right direction.“His awareness and understanding of things is really good. He’s fully aware and we’ve been telling him and preparing him to go over back to Anfield on Sunday and he’s got a smile on his face and puts his thumbs up, so he’s fully aware and really looking forward to it.“I’m sure Anfield will give him a rousing reception.“And you couldn’t pick a better game – hopefully he’ll bring the luck and inspire the lads to three points.”Listen back to Martin Cox on talkSPORT in full abovelast_img
