Roma ultra jailed for street violence before Liverpool Champions League clash which left fan Sean Cox in 'dire condition'

A Roma football fan has been jailed for two-and-a-half years after street violence before Liverpools Champions League semi-final which left a fan seriously injured. Roma supporter Daniele Sciusco, 29, from Rome, admitted violent disorder before the match kicked off at Anfield match on April 24. Preston Crown Court heard Irish Liverpool fan Cox, 53, was still in a serious condition after suffering a he

ad injury in the violence - although Sciusco was not directly involved in causing his injuries. Sentencing, Recorder of Preston Judge Mark Brown said: The Champions League semi-final was a major international football event that was being televised across Europe, and your actions and the actions of the Italian group tarnished significantly what was intended to be a sporting and enjoyable occasion.

ring violent disorder of which you were a part, and the impact on him has been

catastrophic. The court was told Sciusco was part of a group of Roma ultras who had flown from Italy for the match. Video footage showed the group of about 25 fans, all dressed in dark clothing, going on to Walton Breck Road, outside the stadium just b

efore kick-off. Keith Sutton, prosecuting, said Sciusco had a belt in his hand as the group confronted Liverpool fans.

Mr Sutton told the court Mr Coxs brother Martin had described hearing shouting and chanting outside the stadium. He said: He turned to his brother to discover he was already on the floor, he hadnt seen what happened to him. As Martin Cox tried to assist his brother, he was kicked and fell onto the floor next to him.

The court heard Sciusco was close by when Mr Cox was injured, but was not directly responsible for the assault. Judge Brown said: There were a lot of people around when the violence started, you and others in the Ultra group were armed with weapons such as belts and chains and you were threatening and were being abusive towards the Liverpool fans. Inevitably that was provocative. He added: The police were faced with an extremely difficult situation. The police intervened and eventually the shocking and ugly events came to an end. Fans on top

sed by spotters from the Italian police and was arrested as he left the stadium - by which time he had changed his jacket and was wearing a baseball cap. Nigel Power, defending, said Sciuscos parents and sister, who were in court,

had been to visit him in prison once a fortnight since his arrest. He said Sciusco w

orked at a large pharmaceutical

practice and volunteered teaching pupils in schools and colleges to

use defibrillators.

Although the incident that we have seen on the CCTV was an ugly one, it wasnt one that this defendant, at least, set out in anticipation of, he said. Filippo Lombardi, 21, denies violent disorder and wounding/inflicting griev

ous bodily harm on Mr Cox and is due to stand trial later this year.
