Radamel Falcao has described Monaco's start to the season as "terrible" after a 2-0 defeat to Saint-Etienne on Friday extended their winless run in Ligue 1 to seven games.

Last year's runner up has endured a torrid start to the campaign, with an opening day win over Nantes its only maximum points return.

Two goals from Wahbi Khazri compounded its misery on Friday, with Colombian striker Falcao citing its inability to defend robustly enough as a primary cause of its struggles.

It travels to Germany on Wednesday to face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League and the 32-year-old has demanded an improved performance from the team.

"It's not just against St-Etienne, it's a terrible start to the championship. We have not managed to be as effective as expected and we have not been able to defend in the best way," he told Canal+.

"We cannot go on like that, we have to raise our heads because on Wednesday, we have to go to Dortmund to get a good result."
