Sean Cox has congratulated Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool side, who were crowned Premier League Champions last night.

"Sean couldn’t be happier for Liverpool being crowned champions and sends his love and congratulations to Jurgen Klopp and the entire club," his family exclusively told OTB Sports.

"The Cox family are so delighted that Sean got the opportunity to go to Anfield on a couple of occasions earlier this season and meet many of his LFC sporting heroes. Liverpool FC is a huge part of Sean’s life and he hopes to be back in Anfield before long."

The Meath native was included in the club's celebrations last night.

Liverpool chief executive Peter Moore paid tribute to Irish fan Sean Cox after Liverpool's Premier League win.

"Number 19 is finally here. It’s for our millions of fans, near and far...we miss you. It’s for the Reds that fell to the virus. It’s for my dad, who first took me to Anfield in 1959. It’s for Sean Cox, smiling in Ireland right now. And it’s for the 96, who will never be forgotten," he tweeted last night.

The father-of-three was left with life-altering injuries after suffering an unprovoked attack from Roma fans outside of Anfield in April 2018.

Liverpool make history

Last night, The Reds are confirmed champions without kicking a ball and sit atop the Premier League with 86 points after 31 matches. It is their first top-flight title since 1990.

Chelsea beat City 2-1, with a goal from Christian Pulisic and a penalty from Willian leaving Kevin De Bruyne's free-kick a consolation.

The result means that City can no longer catch Liverpool, to copper-fasten a league finish that has long been known.
