Liverpool striker Luis Suarez named PFA player of the year



Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was rewarded for a remarkable season by landing the Professional Footballers’ Association’s Player of the Year award.

Suarez travelled down to the ceremony at Grosvenor House in London after the Reds’ 2-0 defeat at home to Chelsea earlier in the day. Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, absent for the game at Anfield due to injury, beat Daniel Sturridge to be named winner of the Young Player of the Year award.

Suarez was the overwhelming favourite for the top award after enjoying arguably the best season of his career. He has scored 30 league goals in 31 appearances, including two trebles and four goals in a devastating performance against Norwich in December.

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.”

Suarez, 27, was one of three Liverpool players named in the Premier League team of the year along with Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge.

Chelsea also had three players included, Petr Cech and Gary Cahill joining Hazard, while
Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure were Manchester City’s two representatives.

Southampton duo Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw and Everton’s Seamus Coleman made up the team.
Hazard, 23, said of his individual prize: “It’s always good to win awards because it means you’ve had a good season, but I prefer to win things collectively and I must say thank you to all my Chelsea team-mates, the staff and the fans.”
But there was more success for the Reds when Liverpool ladies Martha Harris was named PFA women’s young player of the year.
