Liverpool’s Luis Suarez didn’t score on the pitch Sunday, but he took away a major haul in the evening when he was named PFA Player of the Year.
Suarez is the just the second Liverpool player to snag the honor in the past 25 years, after Steven Gerrard took home the trophy in 2006. Liverpool had four winners between 1980 and 1988: Terry McDermott, Kenny Dalglish, Ian Rush and John Barnes.
Liverpool also had the Women’s Player of the Year (Lucy Bronze) and Women’s Young Player of the Year (Martha Harris), in addition to Gerrard and Sturridge earning a spot on the Team of the Year.
“The Premier League is full of really great players & so it is a great honour when these players recognise your work on the pitch,” says Suarez. “Really this is for my teammates & the staff at Liverpool because without their help I wouldn’t have this prize.”
