The Frenchman has had a prosperous managerial career in his native nation. He is best known for leading Lille to the Ligue 1 championship in 2010–2011. Additionally, that year, Garcia won the Coupe de France and was the reason for the growth of a young Eden Hazard in one of the best players.
Despite landing jobs with AS Roma, Marseille, and Lyon, Garcia hasn’t been able to win any more awards since his adventures with Lille. The management has experienced two significant final losses in the previous five years. Garcia was defeated by Marseille in the 2018 Europa League final and by Lyon in the 2020 Coupe de la Ligue final.
During the 2019–20 season, the 58-year-old famously guided Lyon to the Champions League semifinal. The French team advanced beyond the group stage and then defeated Manchester City and Juventus to advance to the semifinals. Then, Bayern Munich, the eventual champions, defeated Garcia’s team.
Garcia’s current goal is to deliver silverware to Al-Nassr.
