The Frenchman voted Liverpool’s Luis Suarez player of the year for the second season running, despite the ugly race row between the pair in October 2011, reports the Sunday Mirror.

Suarez was fined £40,000 and banned for eight matches for racially abusing the United defender but the 32-year-old has nonetheless deemed the Uruguayan the best player in the Premier League this term.

“Suarez is an outstanding footballer, but no-one at United could believe it when Patrice voted for him,” an Old Trafford insider reportedly told the Mirror.

“It shows the measure of the man that he didn’t allow what happened between them to cloud his judgement.

“He clearly doesn’t bear a grudge.”

Suarez is the favourite to beat teammates Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, Adam Lallana of Southampton and Man City’s Yaya Toure to the award, which will be announced at a gala dinner in London on April 27.

The former Ajax striker has scored 30 league goals to fire Liverpool to an expected title challenge, whilst avoiding (so far) the controversy that plagued this first two seasons in the English football.
