Former Liverpool sports chief Damien Comolli never expected Luis Suarez to be a prolific goal scorer.

Comolli worked on his own rule of thumb that, with the exception of Ruud van Nistelrooy, strikers imported from Holland only score around a third of the goals in the Premier League, says the Daily Mail.

Suarez scored 81 times in 110 appearances at Ajax; he has 17 in 48 appearances in the Premier League.

Dirk Kuyt scored 71 times in 98 appearances for Feyenoord; at Anfield, he scored 51 goals in 208 appearances.
