Le Toux finding his feet in Philadelphia

Philadelphia Union recruit Sebastien Le Toux is beginning to find his feet in a new city after three years in Seattle.

The Frenchman moved with the Sounders from the USL into MLS in 2009 but in the off-season, signed with expansion franchise the Union with whom he netted a hat-trick in their first official hitout last week.

Le Toux said he was enjoying his time in Phillie after a successful stint with the Sounders and admitted he was very lucky in his current position.

"I really loved the city and the team," Le Toux told csnphilly.com. "But I love it here now.

"I try to never be sad about something. I do something I love, and I'm very lucky."

Union coach Peter Nowak said he was determined to get Le Toux back into consistent goalscoring form and said the 26-year old was a joy to work with.

"Sebastien is a very versatile guy," Nowak said. "He plays a bunch of positions … and there are many options for what we can do with him. We chose to give him a chance up top. We want him to get back that killer instinct.

"He's a great gentleman," Nowak added. "He's one of the finest guys in camp. Regardless of the weather conditions, or if the team is tired because of the physical part, he's always one guy with a smile on his face."
