Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he has “not for a second” considered quitting the club this week.
Arsenal’s chances of reaching the Champions League quarter-finals were hit when they lost 3-1 to Bayern Munich in the last 16 on Tuesday.
This followed a fifth-round FA Cup exit at the hands of Championship Blackburn.
“We need to be united and strong and not be too destabilised by people who have strong opinions after one game,” he said.
Wenger has been under scrutiny this week, with some reports suggesting that he should consider his future.
Arsenal have not picked up silverware since beating Manchester United on penalties to lift the FA Cup in 2005.
Wenger’s side were also knocked out of the Capital One Cup by League Two side Bradford in December.
In his news conference, Wenger was asked if he had “felt like throwing in the towel”.
He replied: “Never, not one second.
“I have a contract until the end of 2014 and at the moment we are on a short-term plan. I have been here for a long time and have to consider what I want to do. That will be decided in 2014, not before.”
