Suarez expresses delight at Football Writers award

Not content with winning the Barclays player of the season, the Barclays Golden Boot AND the PFA Player of the Year, star striker Luis Suarez has now been handed the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year too!

 Suarez was the top-pick of over 300 journalists and just pipped team mate Steven Gerrard to the post in order to win the award. Wining the accolade is also proof of how Suarez has risen in esteem in the eyes of journalists after his ill-advised bite on Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.

Speaking of his delight over winning the award, Suraez said:

 “Of course it’s a great day because after my last year this prize is amazing for me and I think for the club as well,”

 “A lot of big players have won this prize. Thank you so much to all the writers who voted for me because they recognise my job on the pitch and they know that I try my best to help the team. I think the Premier League is the best league in the world and for you to recognise this is amazing for me.

 “It was a difficult time one year ago. When you see on the internet, you see in the newspapers the criticism of yourself, it’s difficult. I accept the criticism.

 “If you have children, you can change for that. Maybe in a few years your children can see on the internet what their dad was doing.”

He also spoke of how happy he is playing for Liverpool, scotching the rumours that he may transfer this summer.

 “I signed a contract because I love it here and I am so happy here. If you are not happy here you do not sign a new contract.

 “It is a dream because the Liverpool stadium is unbelievable, the fans are the 12th man because they help so much and they know what is important. My family as well help so much.

 “The Liverpool team for me is one of the best in the world because nobody here in the dressing room thinks they are better than another. The people here work together very well. This is a mentality I like.”

 His closing comments covered the fact that he will play against his team mates in the forthcoming World Cup. Speaking of playing against Steven Gerrard he said:

 “That’s difficult because I try to help my country and he will try to help his country,”

 “It is difficult because outside the pitch we are really good friends but on the pitch we forget everything. He’ll kick me, I’ll kick him, it’s normal in football.”
