Radamel Falcao loses cool as Monaco slump to defeat

Radamel Falcao took some stick when he opted to join Ligue 1 new-boys Monaco ahead of the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid.

Many accused him of money motivation - to some he was nothing more than a mercenary grabbing the cash at the expense of Champions League glory.

So, some fans won't be too disappointed to find out all is not perfect in the French principality for the £50m front-man.

Monaco suffered their second consecutive pre-season defeat at the weekend, losing to Bundesliga side Augsburg 1-0 in a friendly.

And Falcao was not a happy bunny. The Colombian striker was on the end of a few rough tackles, and lost his cool early in the first-half.

He lashed out at a defender, before his teammates intervened. And the referee was happy to dish out a yellow.

Claudio Ranieri then made sure he didn't come out for the second half - substituting the forward at half time.

Looks like the former-Chelsea boss has a tough task bringing his expensively assembled side together in time for the new season.

Check out the highlights from their latest pre-season defeat - including Falcao's strop - below...
