According to the Daily Mail, UEFA delegates who attended the match were informed of the offensive banner before half-time but no action was taken to remove it.
Pochettino said: “I didn’t see (it) but the club is aware. It is very disrespectful. It is a shame as it was a great atmosphere. It is very disrespectful, unacceptable and a massive problem for us.”
