The family of Sean Cox say they're overwhelmed and humbled by the support they've received.
The Liverpool fan from Dunboyne in Co. Meath remains in a critical condition in hospital after he was attacked outside Anfield two weeks ago.
In a statement released through the club today, his family say there are no words to describe the gratitude they feel towards the people of Liverpool and Ireland.

They've also asked that their privacy continues to be respected and say that when they have news, they will share it at the appropriate time.
Mr. Cox was attacked outside Anfield Stadium by two Italian men before Liverpool played Roma in the Champions League semi final almost three weeks ago.
