Heurelho Gomes admits he's now feeling well settled at Tottenham.
The Brazilian goalkeeper admits he had his problems when he first arrived from PSV Eindhoven.
"When I arrived, everybody was talking as if it was just my problem but it wasn't," Gomes told the London Evening Standard.
"The team were not doing so well. I wanted to keep playing, even though I was injured, because I thought I needed to prove something, given Tottenham paid so much for me.
"I never felt it was the wrong decision to come. I was very comfortable at PSV, winning all the titles, all the fans perceived me as a hero. But I wanted new challenges, to show my style.
"I kept working hard, that is my style. Now I've adapted, I'm feeling at home and I have no more problems."
Gomes says the support and patience of manager Harry Redknapp was crucial in helping him settle into life at White Hart Lane.
He added: "Harry told me, 'Don't worry. Just continue to work hard as you do. We are not going to put a time limit for you to improve or overcome these initial problems. I know you're a quality player and you're going to get it right.'"
