Roma dealt UEFA punishment after attack on Sean Cox

Roma will have no supporters at their next European away game after incidents before the Champions League clash with Liverpool at Anfield.

Reds supporter Sean Cox has been left in a critical condition after being attacked before the semi-final first leg between the two sides on April 24.

Cox was placed into an induced coma, and remains under care having been moved back to Dublin at the end of May, with two Roma fans on trial, one of whom was charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm.

This was one of a series of attacks by away supporters on the night, and UEFA have moved to punish Roma as a result of “crowd disturbances,” as they confirmed on Tuesday afternoon.

The Serie A club have been fined €50,000, and are prohibited from selling tickets to their supporters for their next two European away games.

UEFA add that: “The second match in which the Italian club will serve the ban from selling tickets is deferred under a probationary period of two years.”

On Monday, Liverpool were fined €20,000 for the “setting off of fireworks,” “throwing of objects,” “acts of damage” and “crowd disturbances” before and during the 3-0 win over Man City on April 4.

They were also fined €6,000 for the “setting off of fireworks” and “throwing of objects” in the second leg at the Etihad Stadium on April 10.
