Club América lost twice against Chivas in the quarter-finals of the 2020 Guardianes tournament and after the elimination their head coach, Miguel Herrera, said that it was a failure of a season. After the 2-1 loss on Saturday against Guadalajara, he was asked if he was going to resign and Herrera answered that it was not up to him, but to sporting director Santiago Baños.

The bosses want Herrera to stay

According to ESPN, the bosses have decided to continue with Herrera for the next season of the Liga MX. His contract expires in 2024 and América can still win a trophy this year because they are in the CONCACAF Champions League, which resumes in December.

Right now Herrera is working alongside Baños to decide which players will leave and who will join for the next 2021 Clausura tournament of the Liga MX. So far it has been confirmed that defender Paul Aguilar will leave the club and sign for a Major League Soccer team.

América will return to practice on Tuesday to prepare for the second leg of the quarter-final against Atlanta United in the Concachampions. The game is scheduled for 16 December and América defeated the MLS team 3-0 in the first leg.
