Couchonnal said "the sale does not seem to him to be 'clean.'" Couchonnal: "This approval of the purchase of Atlas is not fair play. This ruling is going to cost too much in terms of Liga MX's image. The sale of Atlas is evidence that the opportunities are not the same for all teams" (LA AFICION, 1/21). ...
