Jota will face his old club today for the first time since leaving.
Klopp told UEFA: "Diogo, I liked, honestly, from the first game I saw him playing for Wolves. That's how it is.
"He had no idea about that, obviously, but for me it was always clear that when he was kind of in reach, I would go for him because he's very, very interesting and had an exciting career so far: what he did, where he's come from, the moves he made, bam bam bam.
"I liked the discipline he showed, plus the creativity he showed, plus the desire he showed.
"And his skills are pretty good anyway, so I got a lot of good signs before we signed him that it could work out."
