Meanwhile, Tomas Boy will be manager of Atlas for at least another 6 months after he negotiated a contract extension with the Atlas board. The move had been under some doubt after a series of high-profile fallouts, but a great season which ended in the Liguilla quarter finals ultimately meant his place was safe.
Atlas are preparing for 2015 when they will play in the Copa Libertadores. They have been drawn in a group with Colo Colo from Chile.
