Irish Liverpool fan Seán Cox enjoyed a heartwarming reunion with Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp at Anfield on Sunday, March 31.

Cox, a native of Dunboyne in Co Meath, suffered life-changing injuries when he was attacked near Anfield shortly before Liverpool's Champions League semi-final meeting with Roma in April 2018. 

Cox and his brother Martin were victims of an unprovoked attack by a group of Roma fans, leaving Cox with a significant head injury. 

He spent a week in Aintree Hospital after undergoing emergency surgery and has had to learn how to walk again in the wake of the incident. 

Cox, his wife Martina, and carer Eustina were in attendance on Sunday as Liverpool beat Brighton 2-1 to return to the summit of the Premier League table, his fourth time attending a match at Anfield since the attack. 

Stephen Felle, a friend of the Cox family, said Liverpool FC has made modifications to the director's box to accommodate Cox's wheelchair, allowing him to watch games from the director's box on each of his four visits to Anfield. 

Felle added that Klopp has taken a "personal interest" in Cox's story over the past six years. 

"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," Felle told the Irish Independent. 

"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." 

Martina Cox previously said Klopp wrote to her while her husband was in a coma and added that the Liverpool manager always makes a point of spending time with her husband when he is at Anfield. 

Klopp, who has been Liverpool manager for nine years, announced earlier in the year that he would step down from the role at the end of the 2023/24 season, which concludes at the end of May.
