A report out of Scotland said that Peter Nowak had applied for the open Hearts managerial role, but the former Polish international denied talk of his potential departure from the Philadelphia Union.

Originally found by Philly Soccer Page, The Edinburgh Evening News said that Nowak was one of two foreign coaches that had put in an application for the job that Paulo Sergio left due to a disagreement over money.

HEARTS director Sergejus Fedotovas today revealed the criteria for the club's new manager as two experienced European coaches put their names forward for the vacancy. Ukrainian Oleg Protasov and Poland's Piotr Nowak have both submitted CVs to Tynecastle...

Steven Goff, of the Washington Post's soccer site Soccer Insider, talked to Nowak after the report came out and received word from the Union's head coach that he had not "submitted his CV" to Hearts. Nowak denied the report and went with the team to Reading to face the Reading United AC in an affiliate friendly.

Nowak was also approached by Kerith Gabriel, of the Philadelphia Daily News and Philly.com, at the Reading friendly and told the beat reporter the same thing he said to Goff.

The Union have had a tough go of things this season, standing at 2-7-2 after 11 games and in second-to-last place in the Eastern Conference. The Brotherly Game was informed earlier in the season that Nowak would be fired if the team did not produce on the field, making talk of Nowak heading elsewhere believable, despite the former MLS Cup winner's statements otherwise.
