Sections of fans targeted Alves with monkey noises during the 1-1 Primera Division draw at Espanyol's Cornella-El Prat stadium.

Pochettino said after the game in El Mundo Deportivo: "We condemn it, we want to get away from these situations. We want to eradicate these things and I'm right behind that.''

Brazil international Alves insisted he had not heard the racist chants during the game, saying: "I didn't hear anything because I'm only thinking about the field of play.''
