Former Wolves striker Jota has already scored nine times and notched in his first four Premier League games at Anfield - a club record.
“Jurgen (Klopp) had an important role because the way he speaks with the players about our style and our identity is so clear and strong," Lijnders said in tonight's matchday programme. "He has the magic to make these things look simpler.
“Diogo comes from a good tactical culture that makes it more easy, but we can never forget that it still takes time for the body to adapt.
"That's why we are careful – he is adapting to a new style and new ideas. But first and foremost, if you come into a great team, things become easier most of the time.
“He has these natural abilities that were already very important to our game idea. This is what made us want him so much.
“When a new player comes, it's always how the player adapts to the team, its mentality, and how the team understands the player.
"But you can see that he has fire in each vein when he plays, so the adaptation process has been very natural."
