Monaco coach Thierry Henry lamented the lack of desire of his players, beaten (0-1) Saturday in Reims.
Thierry Henry (coach of Monaco, after the defeat (0-1) against Reims): "This defeat is more worrying than the previous ones because we did not know how to create a game and we did not get an opportunity. Reims practically won all his duels and played as it should be done at home. On our side, the desire was not there. We have the chance to end up eleven against ten while we are not in the game and we punish ourselves with this second yellow (for Pelé, in the 71st).
It is a difficult situation but there are still many things to be done. After, if a gap is growing with the teams above us, it will start to be more complicated. The most important thing is to regain that confidence because the guys are not released. With the wounded we have, we must find the amalgam and the best tactical scheme. Me too, I'm learning, it's only been two weeks since I've been there. "
Radamel Falcao (Monaco striker): "We have to keep believing and working to turn things around. It will be necessary to play thoroughly Tuesday because it is an important game for us (against Bruges in the Champions League). Of course we are very worried, it is a very complicated situation because we did not manage to win. It will be necessary to give everything to find the victory quickly. Reims scored first and after they defended very well, this is the strong point of this team. They did not leave space and it was difficult for us. All players must stay together, this is the only way out of this situation. "
