Le Toux: Firing Nowak was the perfect thing to do

MOST COMMENTED

Kerith Gabriel interviewed French striker Sebastien Le Toux, whose third game for the New York Red Bulls will be against his former club, Philadelphia, which had sent the Philly fan favorite to Vancouver in the offseason.

Asked about the Philadelphia Union firing Coach Peter Nowak in June, Le Toux said:

"Right now, I am kind of a fan when I look at that situation. Obviously, since Peter has left, the team has been able to find success and that's good for Philly and those fans who deserve to watch a good team. You can see that since the move, this team has had more energy and a rhythm that has provided them with some good games. I don't want to get too much into it, but I think it was the perfect thing to do."

On his frequent club changes, Le Toux said: "It's the nature of the business, but that doesn't make it any less frustrating. To go from Seattle to Philly, Philly to Vancouver, Vancouver to now New York, and the changes from East Coast to West Coast, it's a lot, yeah. It's difficult to change like that just because there is so much involved each time you move from place to place. Having to get accustomed to new teammates, a new city, you feel like you have to prove yourself all over again. But I am happy here in New York and my teammates and the staff have made my transition really easy."
