1. Unprovoked Tragedy
In 2018, Liverpool played Roma in the Champion’s League. However, the game saw one fan’s life change forever. Sean Cox traveled to Liverpool from Ireland for a dream experience. But it became a nightmare after a Roma fan unleashed an unprovoked attack upon him. Cox did nothing to instigate the random violence. In the end, he suffered permanent brain damage and was unable to walk or speak.
Cox’s wife Martina issued a harrowing statement after the legal verdict. She said, “Today brings to a close to the court process. However, the effects of the attack on Sean will remain with us for a lifetime. While it is pleasing to know that Mr. Mastrelli (the attacker) will serve three-and-a-half years, he has given Sean and our family a life sentence.” No sports fan should have to endure that kind of horror.
