Men's PFA Player's Player of the Year: Luis Suarez
Liverpool's Luis Suarez has been named the PFA Men’s Players’ Player of the Year 2014.
The shortlist was full of exceptionally talented players including a former winner. But despite the strength of the competition, it was Liverpool’s Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez that has been voted by his fellow members as the 2014 Men’s PFA Players’ Player of the Year.
Liverpool’s number seven has been in inspired form all season with his only blip, if you can call it a blip, when he went five games without hitting the back of the net. It wasn’t long though until business returned to normal and the goals began to flow again.
Since then Suarez has gone on to hit 30 goals so far in the Barclays Premier League which sees him sitting nicely at the top of the scoring charts. With the closest player to him being Daniel Sturridge, who has 20 goals to his name, it is clear to see why Suarez stood out to his fellow members as the worthy winner of the award.
Suarez’s sparkling form throughout the season has also been pivotal in Liverpool’s push towards their first ever Barclays Premier League title. The SAS (Suarez and Sturridge) leading the line has struck fear into opposition defences during a season in which Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers would have been happy with a Champions League spot.
Suarez will be now be focused on picking up another trophy at the end of the season, the Barclays Premier League title, to go along with his well-deserved PFA Men’s Players’ Player of the Year 2014 award.
It is the night when football professionals, sports VIP's, football industry and media gather to pay tribute to the players that have been chosen as the PFA’s Player of the Year.
