Italian man pleads guilty to violent disorder on Liverpool fan before Champions League semi-final against Roma
The Liverpool players held up this message in honour of Cox after the second leg clash in Rome
An Italian man has pleaded guilty to violent disorder before Liverpool’s Champions League game against Roma which left a Liverpool fan seriously injured.
Daniele Sciusco, 29, admitted to the violent disorder on Sean Cox, a 53-year-old Liverpool fan from the Republic of Ireland.
A second man, Filippo Lombardi, 21, has pleaded not guilty to the same charge and another for inflicting grievous bodily harm.
He was remanded in custody for trial at Preston Crown Court in October.
Mr Cox, from Dunboyne, County Meath, is still in a critical condition after being attacked on 24 April outside The Albert pub on Breck Road, Walton.
