Biting an opponent and the racial abuse of Patrice Evra made Suarez Âfootballâ€™s Public Enemy No.1 last season.
â€śHe is a tremendous player,â€ť said Arteta, â€śAnd he has shown a lot of character to get back after getting really criticised and on the front pages a lot. He has gone on to produce some great performances and his goal-scoring record is amazing.
â€śIt was very difficult for him because he had a lot of people against him and he was under massive pressure.
â€śLast summer when everyone thought he was leaving, he still came back and put in some great performances.
â€śI like players like this. When they are on the floor and everyone is on them they stand up and prove themselves and I admire that.â€ť
