The Dutch striker was blocked from returning to Fenerbahce on loan due to a foot injury that later required surgery. He was not handed a squad number from Spurs but has remained in London to undergo rehabilitation with the club.
But when asked about Janssen in his pre-match press conference, Pochettino clearly wanted to avoid talking about the situation.
“I think we are going to play in the Champions League and it’s clear the situation of Vincent,” said Pochettino.
“I don’t think it’s a moment to talk about him. We’ve talked a lot already.”
