Although Tottenham last two games against Man City and Southampton resulted in victories, Mourinho said there is a burden on him to turn Spurs into genuine trophy contenders.

"Contrary to some people who want to be in the news and tell things that are not true - I am really happy at the club," he told Sky Sports.

"You know me quite well, enough to know that I am really happy. Difficult? Yes, but if it was not difficult it wouldn't be for me.''

The Portuguese also dusted insinuation that there is dressing room unrest going on in Tottenham which saw players like Danny Rose and Christian Eriksen depart during January market.
