Obviously Gareth Bale won it but I think Suarez has surpassed what he did last year
And Liverpool legend Rush feels that the 27-year-old Uruguay international is a worthy winner of the prestigious individual prize.
“He’s had an absolutely fantastic season,” Rush told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“Last season Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez were the best players. Obviously Gareth Bale won it but I think Suarez has surpassed what he did last year.
“He’s been fantastic. He’s not just a great goal-scorer – it’s his work-rate as well.”
Suarez has scored 30 Premier League goals this season in 31 games, as well as notching up 12 assists for his team-mates.
