Jota, 24, joined Liverpool in September for an initial fee of £41million after three excellent seasons with the Molineux club.
"No, [I'm] not surprised at all," the Wolves manager told Stadium Astro. “The quality and the talent and the dedication that Diogo has is amazing.
“I'm pleased Diogo is having an impact on Liverpool. I think he is in the right place at the right moment of his career so I wish him all the best.
"At the same time we thank him for all the good things he made for Wolves."
