Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says the opinion of fans will influence his decision over whether to remain in charge next season.
A group of Arsenal supporters protested after Tuesday’s 5-1 Champions League home defeat by Bayern Munich.
“It will not be the most important factor but you consider it, of course,” Wenger said of the fans’ reaction.
“I worked very hard for 20 years to make our fans happy and when you lose I understand they are not.”
Wenger, who has been Arsenal boss since October 1996, is expected to announce in the next month whether he will stay on next season, but denied he had already told the players of his decision.
“My decision is to focus on the next game and be absolutely sure we respond well on Saturday,” the 67-year-old said.
Arsenal are currently fifth in the Premier League, 16 points behind leaders Chelsea, and host non-league Lincoln in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup this weekend.
