A Scottish report linking Peter Nowak to the open Hearts job was adamantly denied by the former Polish international, but the author of the article stated that it was a "100% definite" that Vladimir Romanov had received his resume.
"I'm not sure of his chances. I just know he applied," Barry Anderson, the Edinburgh Evening News writer who broke the news of Nowak possibly heading to Scotland, said on Twitter. "His CV is with Hearts at the moment, that is 100% definite."
Nowak has had a rocky start to the 2012 Major League Soccer regular season, as the Union have taken only eight points from a possible 33 and sit in second-to-last in the Eastern Conference and the overall league. After coaching a second-year franchise to the semi-finals of the East last year, Nowak spent the offseason and part of this season moving around players to put together the team he wanted.
Word of Nowak's eroding situation in Major League Soccer has reached his home country of Poland, where news outlets are beginning to cover the coach's potential future. Futbol News had this to say about the reason behind a move away from the Union by Nowak:
The fans are demanding the resignation of Nowak, who lost in their eyes also because they got rid of lightly several popular players, as Sebastien Le Toux, Danny Califf and Danny Mwanga. More and more often heard that the days of Polish coach are numbered.
