The Olympique Lyon coach points out the consequences for Ligue 1 after having halted the 2019/20 season in advance.
Rudi Garcia He is the coach of the club that fought the most in the cause to resume the canceled action of the Ligue 1 2019/20, being affected by his position (7th) after 28 disputed dates and that left him out of the UEFA tournaments the following season.
In this tune, the strategist whose team will face this Friday with Juventus in Turin in search of the Champions League quarterfinals, attacked the French organization as it considered premature its determination to suspend last season without end and also referred to the consequences that it will bring to French football.
“All the other leagues were resumed except the French one. It must be said that we made this decision too soon. We should have waited to see what the others were doing. We needed more dialogue between the other competitions and UEFA. For us, the problem will be economic” , said the technician of Olympique Lyon in an interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport.
In financial terms, García considered: “We lost many millions and what everyone will do, except perhaps PSG, will be to look for (recover) those millions. They will have to sell to the best players. As soon as the transfer window opens, we will lose many players and we are going to weaken even more. The incredible thing is that all the countries continued their season behind closed doors, while we decided to interrupt it, and then resume it with 5,000 spectators in the final of the League Cup. Can you tell me why? “
