Lyon's winless run continues, PSG rivals all drop points
Garcia, who was appointed in place of the sacked Sylvinho on Monday, could only watch as his new side was held 0-0 at home by modest Dijon, the league's bottom team.
It stretched Lyon's winless run in the league to eight games and left the side 16th in the 20-team division, 14 points behind leaders PSG after 10 games.
The 55-year-old Garcia was not given the friendliest welcome as Lyon fans remembered his tenure in charge of bitter rivals Marseille and Saint-Etienne. Garcia left Marseille after three seasons in May.
