Suarez has avoided trouble at Barcelona

Suarez finished in second place after receiving three votes, while two journalists voted for Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

Suarez helped Barcelona win an historic treble in his first season at the Camp Nou, following his £75 million transfer from Liverpool last summer, but missed the first two months of the 2014-15 campaign because of a biting incident.

The 28-year-old infamously bit Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup finals in Brazil last summer. It was the third time the striker had been involved in a biting incident and he was subsequently banned by FIFA for four months.

Since joining Barcelona, though, Suarez has managed to steer clear of controversy.

He has acted with complete professionalism at the Camp Nou and now finds himself as part of the world’s most fearsome attacking triumvirate alongside Messi and Neymar.
