Suarez wins Football Writers’ Award

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has been named the Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year, Sky Sports has reported.

It is the second individual prize picked up by Suarez in the past few weeks, having also been named the PFA Players’ Player of the Year in April. Suarez finished second in the balloting 12 months ago and was in the midst of a 10-game ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic at the time.


“Luis is a remarkably gifted addition to the long and distinguished list of winners of our award,” Andy Dunn, the FWA chairman said. “There was a groundswell of support for him last season but our voting opened 12 hours after the biting incident at Anfield, so I think that was taken into account then.


“I must stress that the football writers take into account the player's behaviour - the original citation for the FWA award back in 1947-48 mentioned 'precept and example', so that is taken into account.


“While no-one would say Suarez is whiter than white, you would have to say his behaviour all throughout the season has been very good and I think the football writers have taken that into account - an element of redemption if you like - and allied with those 30 goals, and the sensational talent he has displayed all season, that made him a very, very popular choice.”


Suarez’s Liverpool teammate Steven Gerrard finished second, ahead of Yaya Toure in third, Suarez received more than half of votes cast and 10 different players were picked by the respondents.


The Uruguay international has scored 37 goals in all competitions this season, making 44 appearances for the Reds. His goals have helped Liverpool to second in the table and Brendan Rodgers’ side would go top with a win over Crystal Palace tonight.
