Now Russians are negotiating with a 57-year-old French specialist who also has Spanish citizenship. Sources previously said that Spartak had decided on the candidacy of a new head coach and began negotiations.
Rudy Garcia has led Lyon since October 2019. This season in Ligue 1, the team is in fourth place in the standings, gaining 70 points and six points behind the leading Lille. Lyon is one point away from the Champions League zone. Garcia's contract with the club expires in the summer.
