José Mourinho is confident that he will be remembered for the right reasons at Tottenham despite overseeing a collapse in Spurs’ form during his first full season in charge.

Mourinho’s men were leaders of the Premier League in early December but have scored just 12 points from 13 games since then to drop to ninth place.

They are nine points out of the top four, so a return to the Champions League next season seems unlikely.

However, the Portuguese has a shot at redemption when his team faces Manchester City in the League Cup final in April.

Spurs are also well prepared to reach the knockout stages of the Europa League, 4-1 after the first leg of their tie against Austrian Wolfsberger, with the second leg played on Wednesday.

“I want to bring happiness to everyone, the president, the players, the fans, everyone who is connected to the club,” Mourinho said on Tuesday.

“I feel like one of them and I want to give them happiness. I believe that we will win and that I will be in the history of Tottenham for the good reasons and not for the bad ones ”.

Spurs have lost five of their last six Premier League games, an unprecedented streak for Mourinho in a long and successful coaching career at Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Manchester United.

“I want to know which coach has always had blue skies and never cloudy or a little dark,” he said.

“Maybe just a coach who is always in a dominant club in a league. It shows how beautiful my career has been. Depresses me? No. It is a challenge. I work for the club, the players and the fans ”.

Mourinho said he is “hurt” by the bad run of results, but that he feels more motivated than ever.

“Nobody is happy but nobody is depressed,” he added. “I feel positive. Maybe a little strange for you after losing so many games, but I’m sure. I’m not happy but I wake up wanting to come here. Everyone loves to train and works hard with so many games. “

Mourinho said he was in constant contact with President Daniel Levy and that there was no friction between the couple.

“My relationship is the same from day one, which is one of respect and open communication,” he said. “We respect each other. There is no contradiction between us because we both feel the same. “
