The Argentine coach has not always made the versatile Belgian a regular member of his starting lineup this season, leading to rumours that he could look to leave the club after also attracting some interest in the summer.
The likes of Barcelona showed an interest in Vertonghen in pre-season, and he has not yet committed his future to the club by signing a new contract.
Still, Pochettino is unconcerned, saying: “Jan is an important player for us and for me.
“I know sometimes the players are affected by the rumours and comments. For me I don’t read the speculation and he’s a very good and key player for us.”
