Luis Suarez clinches FWA award

The Liverpool forward's trophy chest keeps increasing with another prize added to his haul Monday.

Luis Suarez has again been honored for his season's efforts after being named Footballer of the Year by the Football Writers' Association.

The Uruguayan was named PFA Player of the Year by his peers last month, with 30 Premier League goals helping Liverpool unexpectedly fight for the Premier League title. 

He added to his PFA award Monday when the FWA crowned him their player of the season ahead of teammate and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard. 

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure finished third in the poll, with Suarez collecting 52 percent of the vote. 

"Those members who have been fortunate enough to be working at a match involving Luis Suarez have witnessed an astonishing talent first-hand," FWA chairman Andy Dunn of The Sunday Mirror said. "Tireless endeavor 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."
