"It's not my style to speak about another player," Pochettino said when asked about Schneiderlin. "It's not my main concern.
"I think we have an unbelievable squad and I think, for the club, last season was a big investment and signed unbelievable players.
"The most important thing is to develop our players and to provide the best things for us to show on the pitch."
Pochettino also appeared to rule out suggestions that the club were willing to cash in on England international Andros Townsend amid links with QPR - for whom the winger played on loan in the second half of the 2012-13 season.
"We need to recover a player like [Townsend] because he has great potential and very good qualities," the manager added.
"Like all the players, he is in the squad so he is important. He was injured for the World Cup so he has to recover."
