Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone said Luis Suarez’s goal-scoring record spoke for itself when the club decided to sign him and confirmed the Uruguayan would make his debut in Sunday’s La Liga opener at home to Granada.

Suarez signed a two-year deal with Atletico Friday after completing a free transfer from Barcelona, where he scored 198 goals in six years but was encouraged to leave by new coach Ronald Koeman.

Simeone has seen a fair share of strikers flop at Atletico, including big-money signings such as Mario Mandzukic and Jackson Martinez.

But he is convinced Suarez has the right attitude to succeed and hoped he would have a similar impact to Radamel Falcao, Antoine Griezmann and Diego Costa.
