Henry says AS Monaco lack desire, following defeat

New AS Monaco manager Thierry Henry is still looking for his first win as boss, and he said the team lacked desire in the defeat to Reims.

Monaco have picked up two draws and two defeats in Henry’s first four games in charge in all competitions.

He said form needs to improve if results are to change.

“This defeat is more worrying than the previous ones because we did not know how to create in the game and we did not get an opportunity,” said Henry after the game.

“Reims practically won all of their duels and played as they should at home. On our side, the desire was not there.

“It is a difficult situation and 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 free.”
