Suarez receives top UK football award

 Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has been named as the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year at an awards ceremony in London on Sunday.

The Uruguayan, 27, travelled down to the ceremony after the Reds’ 2-0 defeat at home to Chelsea earlier in the day.
«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,» Suarez said.

Chelsea’s Eden Hazard was voted Young Player of the Year.

Suarez’s strike partner Daniel Sturridge, 24, and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard joined him in the Premier League Team of the Year, along with three Chelsea players — goalkeeper Petr Cech, defender Gary Cahill and midfielder Eden Hazard, BBC News reports.

Luis at Liverpool made it a clean sweep when Lucy Bronze was named the Women’s Players’ Player of the Year and team-mate Martha Harris was voted the Young Player of the Year.

The award capped a remarkable rehabilitation for Suarez who is the Premier League’s top scorer this season with 30 goals, despite missing six games at the start of the season as part of a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic last April.

Suarez added: «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.»
His named was booed when it was read out at last year’s ceremony as he was beaten to the award by Tottenham’s Gareth Bale,just days after his ban for biting started.
