Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho has reiterated that he will be remembered in the club's history for "good reasons" as he looks to halt their recent slide which has put his future at the north London club under speculation.

As per ESPN, Tottenham chairman, Daniel Levy will reportedly wait until the end of the season before deciding on Mourinho's future at the club, but the immediate concern for the manager is to address a run of five defeats from six Premier League games that leaves their top four hopes hanging by a thread.

Tottenham's dreadful form has led to increased pressure on the shoulders of Mourinho, who has reiterated that he is better equipped to handle the situation than he was when arriving in England for the first time to take charge of Chelsea in 2004.

"Thank God I am not the manager I was. Thank God, because if there is no evolution in us... I also want to believe you think you are a better journalist than you were 10 years ago or so. So, thank God. But I agree with you, probably I would not be as calm and confident and in control of my emotions because during my career I had sometimes problems not in relation to results," he said at a press conference.

"Maybe your age, your experience as a person and a journalist makes you realise that people with more experience, we are better equipped to cope with negative moments. I am calm. I am in control of my emotions. I cannot switch on and switch off I'm happy.

"My nature does not change. I lose a game, of course I am not happy but maturity helps. And I feel very confident. I believe we are going to improve and I believe that I will be in Tottenham's history for the good reasons and not for the bad reasons."

There have been reports that some players are not happy with Mourinho's conservative style on the field, while there have also been murmurs of him having a strained relationship with Dele Alli and Gareth Bale.

The 58-year-old has refuted such reports, insisting that he retains the full backing of everyone in the squad as he looks to ensure that the club arrest their slide of results and ensure that they win a first trophy since 2008.
