Police charge two men who nearly killed Liverpool fan

A statement said: "We can confirm that detectives have charged two Italian men following an incident in Anfield on Tuesday 24 April in which a 53-year-old man was seriously injured".

Two Italian men have been charged in connection with the attack which happened ahead of Liverpool's Champions League match with Roma, Merseyside Police said.

Mr Cox, from Dunboyne sustained a serious head injury and is being cared for at Walton Hall Neurological Centre.

Two Italian men have been remanded in custody over the alleged attack of a Liverpool supporter.

Daniele Sciusco, 29, has been charged with violent disorder.

"He was attacked by people who claim to support Roma but we did mention a repeated history of this tiny minority who claim to represent that club that have got in trouble", said host Darragh Maloney.

According to Merseyside Police, nine men were arrested in total for various offences before and after the match.

Since this attack occurred, a fundraising page to help pay for Mr Cox's medical costs and any additional expenditures that his family may have to incur has raised €38,135.

Meath is in a critical condition in hospital.

He said: "Everyone is just in shock and we are praying for a speedy recovery".

Roma issued an even stronger-worded statement, saying: 'AS Roma condemns in the strongest possible terms the abhorrent behaviour of a small minority of travelling fans who brought shame on the club and the vast majority of Roma's well-behaved supporters at Anfield after getting involved in clashes with Liverpool supporters before last night's fixture.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson took to social media on Wednesday to express the team's best wishes to Cox as he recovers from his injuries.

Mr Cox, from Dunboyne in Co Meath, is a prominent member in his local GAA club St Peter's Dunboyne.
