The Monégasque club came back from a 2-0 disadvantage to tie 2-2 against Angers, but this did not make the coach happy.

Flavien Tait scored in the 22nd and 45th minute to give Angers a 2-0 advantage against AS Monaco tonight in the French Ligue 1.

But Colombian striker Radamel Falcao scored in the 49th and 80th minute to give his team the 2-2 draw.

And this doesn’t make Monaco’s coach Leonardo Jardim happy.

“We are between disappointment and joy,” he explained to the club’s official website.

“After that, it is true that it is difficult to get a result on this field against a nice team from Angers.”

“We stayed on a good record of 10 points out of 12 but we did not manage to keep our aggression in the first half, and at the break, we asked for more speed, dynamic, and aggression,” he explained.

Monaco is in the 16th position of the French Ligue 1 table with 26 points, just eight ahead of the last place Guingamp.

Barcelona target Nicolas Pepe will leave Lille this summer

Lille OSC manager Christophe Galtier announced that Nicolas Pepe "will leave" in the summer amid reported interest from Barcelona.

The team has only won six times, drawing eight, and losing 13.

“We finally get one point and it’s better than nothing. We will be in the fight all the way through,” Jardim continued.

“All matches will be difficult, and we must keep in mind that the war of staying up will last until we are saved mathematically.”

Monaco will now host Bordeaux on Saturday, then visit LOSC and close the month of March with a game against Caen.
