Suarez is the ‘player of the year’, claims Liverpool captain Gerrard

Goal :    Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has heaped praise on team-mate Luis Suarez, insisting that the Uruguayan striker has been the “player of the year”.

The 26-year-old, who cost the Reds £22.7 million back in 2011 and was shortlisted for the FIFPro World XI in 2012, has bagged an impressive 23 goals this term, including a haul of 18 in the Premier League.

“For me he’s been player of the year, across this league and a lot more leagues,” Gerrard told BBC Sport.
