Ahead of their Premier League match on Saturday at 12:30pm against Stoke, Liverpool have hung a jersey up in their dressing room as a tribute to Sean Cox who was viciously attacked on Tuesday night when he attended their Champions League game against Roma. 

A long-time member of the Meath club, Dunboyne GAA, Cox was critically injured in the attack which two Italian men have since been charged with. 

Mr. Cox's family released a statement on the matter on Thursday and Liverpool players and fans alike shared tributes to the man on Social Meida

James Carroll, Editor of Liverpool Football Club's official website, shared this photo on his Twitter page on Saturday just before kick-off.
