Some good news in this ocean of Covid-19 weirdness - Liverpool fan Sean Cox has been deemed well enough to return to his home, for good.
Two years after being attacked outside of Anfield before the Champions League tie against AS Roma, Sean Cox returned to his home in County Meath, Ireland on Friday, with his family surrounding him. He had returned to Anfield in November 2019 for the first time since the incident, attending the match against Manchester City, and meeting Jurgen Klopp and some of the lads.
Martina Cox, Sean’s wife, took to Facebook recently to write about what the return means to the family - especially at a time when everyone needs to be in one spot.
“Amidst our challenges, a positive moment as Sean Cox makes his return home,” the post begins, written on the Support Sean Cox Facebook page, created to help raise funds and keep track of the efforts of the Cox family.
“For the first time in almost two years, the Cox family are finally reunited under one roof as Sean makes a long awaited and welcome return to his home in Dunboyne.
Sean’s journey over this time has been challenging and difficult, however today is an important and positive milestone for Sean and his family.
While Sean will continue to require full-time care and ongoing rehabilitation for the foreseeable future, today is a definitely a day to enjoy.”
Martina Cox adds: “This is a day we as a family have been looking forward to for a long time. While Sean still has a long road to travel, having him home with us is an incredibly important step as we come together as a family unit again.
“I can’t thank enough those who have helped Sean along the way over the past two years. Without a doubt this support has made today possible.
In particular, I would like to thank the incredible staff in Marymount Care Centre in Lucan for the care and support they have provided to Sean over the past number of months.”
The Facebook post goes on to state that Sean will still need round the clock care and full-time rehabilitation, but the return home is still something to celebrate, just behind two years after the attack that got him into this place. Literally at a time when being home safe, with your family, means the most.
