Suarez lands Football Writers' award
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has been named the Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year.
Suarez, who also won the Professional Footballers' Association Players' Player of the Year last month, completed the double in reward for an impressive campaign.
Despite missing the first four games of the Premier League season through suspension after biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, the Uruguay international looks assured of winning the division's Golden Boot after netting 30 goals.
His form has played a huge part in Liverpool's title challenge this term, with the club currently sitting second in the table with two games to go, behind Manchester City only on goal difference.
The Uruguay international follows in the footsteps of Gareth Bale after the Wales international claimed both the FWA and PFA Player of the Year awards last year. Suarez, who joined the Reds from Ajax in 2011, was also named in the PFA's Team of the Year.
The FWA made the announcement on Monday via its official Twitter account.
FWA chairman Andy Dunn, of the Sunday Mirror, said in a statement: "Those members who have been fortunate enough to be working at a match involving Luis Suarez have witnessed an astonishing talent first-hand.
"Tireless endeavour allied to extraordinary imagination makes an irresistible combination. Add ingenious, impudent finishing and you have a footballer who truly quickens the pulse.
"Luis is a remarkable gifted addition to the long and distinguished list of winners of our award."
In a poll that saw 10 different players get votes, Suarez collected 52 percent of the overall vote, ahead of teammate Steven Gerrard, who came second, with Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure in third place.
