The Uruguayan adds that to his PFA triumph.
It’s been a great season for Liverpool forward Luis Suarez and now the South American has been named Football Writers’ Player of the Year as well.
The 27-year-old adds the award to the PFA Player of the Year gong that the Uruguay international also won on April 27 – completing a double haul.
Suarez has emulated the success of Gareth Bale, who achieved the same feat 12 months ago when the £85.3m Real Madrid star was still playing for Tottenham Hotspur.
It has been a great year for the Reds attacker and no one can really deny that the Uruguayan doesn’t deserve all this success after the form he has shown.
In a campaign where the Merseysiders have already confirmed their return to the Champions League after a five year absence and could still win their first ever Premier League title, Suarez has been the standout performer.
In 31 league matches to date the striker has scored an incredible 30 goals and has been one of the best players in all of European football.
This is a great turnaround for Suarez, who started the term by serving the remaining six games of a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.
That misdemeanor – coupled with a transfer request last summer and a previous ban for racially abusing Manchester United’s Patrice Evra – made the Anfield star public enemy No.1.
Yet Suarez has largely avoided controversy in 2013/14 to simply dazzle all that have watched him with a string of world-class displays.
