The fullback, who moved from Spurs to Manchester City, was the subject of abuse from his former club’s supporters when the two clubs faced off in Nashville on Saturday.
Pochettino said: “I totally understand. Fans showed they are disappointed with the situation.
“But the Tottenham fans love him.
“He spent nine years at the club. It is not personal.
“It is not a big issue. It is only to show him they were disappointed.”
