Redknapp: It would be a TRAVESTY if Suárez did not win PFA award
Jamie Redknapp says it would be a "travesty" if Liverpool's Luis Suárez did not win the PFA player of the year award this term
Jamie Redknapp believes it would be a “travesty” if Liverpool striker Luis Suárez did not win the PFA players’ player of the year award this season.
The Uruguay forward has been in sensational form for the Merseysiders this season, scoring 22 Premier League goals to help him lead the way in the scoring charts.
And former Liverpool midfielder Redknapp is convinced that the 26-year-old deserves to scoop the award ahead of the likes of Gareth Bale and Robin van Persie.
“World class – we might say it too often, but the man is a magician and wonderful to watch,” Redknapp wrote in his Daily Mail column.
“He scores goals, wins penalties, chases lost causes and drives his team forward. Gareth Bale has been brilliant but it will be a travesty if Suarez isn’t chosen footballer of the year by journalists and players.”
Meanwhile, Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has echoed Redknapp’s sentiments and is keen to see his team-mate scoop the accolade.
“I’ve played with a lot of top players here and I’ve always said Stevie is the best player I’ve ever played with but Luis is on his shoulder,” Carragher told the Liverpool Echo.
“He is close and we are all desperate for him to win player of the year and he deserves it. Every side has a couple of players who you hope can turn things for you and [Suárez] does it on a weekly basis.”
