Vedran Corluka insists that he is not too worried about claims he is out of form.

The Croatian has been nearly an ever-present for Tottenham since joining them from Manchester City in 2008.

But this year has seen Corluka struggle for form and he was on the end of some major criticism following his display in the UEFA Champions League draw at Werder Brmen - which saw Spurs throw away a two-goal lead.

Corluka, who is currently on international duty with Croatia, is determined to prove his worth at White Hart Lane.

"I honestly do not feel like a player who is out of form," he told the Croatian press.

"It is true that I've watched from the bench in a few games but, my God, better players than me have sat there so I don't see why it would be the reason for any trauma.

"I was really bad against Werder Bremen. There is no justification for such a game.

"But, after three years of playing without rest, it's logical that there is a period when these things don't go the way you'd imagined. There is no drama.

"Just as I've enjoyed it before, I now have to accept the other side of the coin and win back my position."
