FC Barcelona sharpshooter Luis Suarez (Salto, Uruguay, 24 January 1987) has been named the Liga BBVA Player of the Month for May in recognition of his prolific exploits which fired the Catalan giants to 2015/2016 Liga BBVA glory.
The Uruguayan has played an absolutely pivotal role in Barça's title defence, posting extraordinary goalscoring stats throughout the season, and finished the campaign as the division's most in-form player. Suarez notched five goals and set up another in the two Liga BBVA games the team played in May. The former Liverpool striker bagged a brace in the victory at home to RCD Espanyol and then rounded off with a decisive hat-trick away to Granada CF on the final matchday. In total, the marksman ended up with a league-high tally of 40 goals, as well as pitching in with an impressive 16 assists for good measure.
This accolade, which is awarded by BBVA, the competition's main sponsor, and voted for by the LaLiga.es writers, recognises Suarez's immense contribution to the Barcelona cause, from his goals to his work ethic, leadership and vision.© LaLiga - Year 2016
