AS Monaco fans are furious over the sales of Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez.

The pair, who featured extensively in the club's marketing strategy, left over the summer, with James signing for Real Madrid and Falcao with Manchester United.

"Supporters, demand a refund for your season ticket," read the headline of a Monaco fans blog post, which spoke of the "hangover" fans were feeling after Falcao sealed his move to Old Trafford.

"With these two departures," read the text, "and with almost no new signings during the whole transfer window, Monaco fans are swinging between anger, confusion and frustration.

"The fans feel betrayed today – for having believed the club's promises and having accepted a significant increase in season ticket prices at Stade Louis II.

"There's nothing to indicate the club will accept these demands, but at least they will show our general unhappiness."
