Luis Suarez scoops PFA award

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has been named as the PFA Player's Player of the Year on Sunday at the Grosvenor House in London, reports Sky Sports.

The Uruguayan has had an amazing 12 months and this time last year he was banned for 10 matches after biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.

This meant that Suarez missed the first six matches of this season and yet he is more than likely to finish as the top goalscorer in the Premier League.

Suarez said: "The Premier League is full of really great players and so it is a great honour when these players recognise your work on the pitch.

"I always try my best for the team and it is nice to get awards but really this is for my team-mates and the staff at Liverpool because without their help I wouldn't have this prize."

The 27-year-old could well have left Liverpool after Arsenal reportedly bid over £40 million for him last summer only to have the Anfield club reject the offer.

The striker signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract in December which ended any speculation of him leaving Liverpool.

With Suarez winning the main award, Chelsea player Eden Hazard won the PFA Young Player of the year.

Liverpool currently sit top of the Premier League, although it remains to be seen if Sunday's 2-0 defeat to Chelsea will scupper their title bid.
