Mancini 'Suarez is player of the year'

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini says Luis Suarez is his player of the year, despite the Liverpool striker's 10-match ban for biting Branislav Ivanovic.

Mancini was unequivocal in selecting the controversial Uruguay star.

The FA handed Suarez the suspension after he accepted a charge of violent conduct.
