AS Monaco’s Vice-President, Vadim Vasilyev, said the club was hugely disappointed after Tuesday night’s 4-1 rout at home to Leipzig. The visitors scored four times in the first 45-minutes, knocking the spirit out of the home team.

Speaking to reporters after the Champions League game, Vasilyev said: “We have messed up the European campaign. In football, there are difficult times, and this is one of them. I didn’t like that the players’ heads dropped so quickly.”

Falcao’s goal two minutes before half-time was the only consolation from the match, which Monaco would have had to win in order to have a chance of going any further in the Champions League.

Meanwhile, Coach Leonardo Jardim may have had the summer departure of top players such as Kylian Mbappe in mind when he said: “This year, in this group, we have paid dearly for our mistakes. Also we haven’t been up to the standard of such a competition, with three defeats at home and two draws away.”

Monaco remain in second place in France’s Ligue 1, and now all eyes will be on the home game against league leaders and arch-rivals Paris Saint-Germain at Stade Louis II on Sunday, November 26.
