Luis Suarez named Player of the Year

Luis Suarez was named Player of the Year at Monday night's Football Supporters' Federation Awards.

Less than six months after Arsenal bid £40,000,001 for the Uruguayan, Suarez was lifting silverware at the Emirates.

But it was an individual award for the striker rather than a team one for Arsene Wenger's men after he beat Leighton Baines, Christian Benteke, Juan Mata, Robin van Persie and Pablo Zabaleta to the prize, which more than 500,000 people voted for.

It has been a remarkable turnaround for the 26-year-old, who was banned for ten matches by the FA last season for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic.

He didn't even make his league bow this season until September 29 but has already notched 17 times for the Reds.

Suarez's form makes him one to watch ahead of the World Cup next summer, but despite his stunning recent displays has admitted he feared facing England before the draw was made.
