Lyon are not focusing on stopping Ronaldo, Coach Rudi Garcia is wary of the entire Juventus team.

Lyon coach Rudi Garcia believes that while Cristiano Ronaldo is a fantastic talent. He is not the only weapon in Juventus’ armory.

Garcia insists he does not have a plan for his Lyon side to stop Ronaldo specifically. He has tried to come up with a strategy that combats Juventus as a team instead.

In an interview reported by Goal, Garcia admits he is looking forward to facing such a formidable challenge.

He said:

“I don’t know him but he’s a great professional.”

“He works more than the others, both before and after sessions.”

“It is interesting for the sport to have such players.”

“He is among the best on the planet and it’s nice to face him.”

“There is no anti-Ronaldo plan – we have to deal with all of their champions.”

“If we need an anti-Ronaldo plan, we need an anti-Dybala plan, an anti-Higuain plan.”

“There are too many good players on this team to solve problems individually.”

“We’re going to have to solve them collectively.”

What do you think, is this a good plan? Surely a player this good needs special attention.
