Juande Ramos denied he is on borrowed time to revive the fortunes of Tottenham with the north London side currently propping up the Barclays Premier League.

"Until the end of my contract - this is the time I have," insisted Ramos, who accepts his side badly need a victory when they visit promoted Stoke on Sunday.

He added: "In our situation all the matches are very important. We need to win at Stoke. All the games are important because at the moment this is a serious situation for us."

Spurs, winners of the Carling Cup back in February, have slumped to the bottom of the table after going seven league matches since their last victory.

But their league form is in direct contrast to their achievements in the knockout competitions where they have progressed to the fourth round of the Carling Cup and reached the group stages of the UEFA Cup.

That counted for nothing as they were beaten 1-0 at home by Hull, another newly-promoted side, in their last league match a fortnight ago but Ramos maintains they are not too far away from turning the corner.

"It's sometimes difficult to explain this situation but the team is losing 1-0, 2-1, it's very near the victory," he said.

"I'm worried because we want to win but this is a normal situation we have had since the start of the season.

"We are working very hard. We want to finish this situation very quickly."

Regarding the growing speculation over his own immediate future, the Spurs boss said: "No problem. It's normal in football. The situation for me is not bad because I have 20 years training. I have had big experiences in good moments and bad moments so this is normal for me."
