Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that in times such as these, it is better to concentrate on the club’s vision, rather than all the disappointments.
The Frenchman has felt no shame in admitting his disappointment after Arsenal’s defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich, but he believes that it is better to stay calm and to not make any quick decisions.
“What we need is to be united and strong, and not destabilised by people who have strong opinions after one game,” Wenger told Arsenal.com.
“What is important is that the Club always goes with the guidelines we have and does not change direction every time we lose a big game. That would lead to a disaster.
“A bad period for a club is also a good opportunity to show how united and strong you are. We have a good history of that at Arsenal.
“I feel we live in a world of emotion, of excess, and it is down to people who have responsibilities to put that into perspective, keep solid and keep guiding the club in the right way.”
Wenger has stressed that he wants to concentrate on the next fixture against Aston Villa now, and nothing else is distracting him.
“On the inside [of the Club], there has been disappointment because we lost a big home game and every time you lose a big game there is massive disappointment,” he said.
“I will not come out with my feelings, that’s not my job. What is important for me is to focus on the next game and try to give my best, like all the players.”
