Sean Cox has returned home almost two years since he was left with life-changing injuries following an attack outside Anfield.

Sean was welcomed home to Dunboyne, Co. Meath by his family almost two years after he and his brother, Martin Cox, were attacked by away supporters ahead of a Champions League match between Liverpool and Roma in April 2018.

Sean's family shared the positive news of the Liverpool fan's long-awaited return home via social media on Friday evening.

The father-of-three will continue to require full-time care for the foreseeable future as he continues his rehabilitation from his injuries.

Commenting on Sean's return, his wife Martina said: "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."
