Philadelphia Union can only get better – Nowak

Philadelphia Union coach Peter Nowak believes that the first-year club can only get better as they move forward.

The Union’s play-off hopes were eliminated despite drawing 1-1 with the Houston Dynamo on the weekend and Nowak is already planning for the future with the promising squad.

“Of course everyone is expecting good results, and the way we play is not going to change from our standpoint,” said Nowak. “The team is not going to get worse, it will only be better. It is a matter of time, when and how.

“From the points standpoint and from the results and standings we were supposed to get more points and we were still supposed to be in the playoff race. That is not the case anymore, so now it is what we are going to take into next season and how we are going to handle three very good games against Los Angeles, New York, and Columbus in Columbus.

“So we will try to find the answers to who and what are going be here for the next year.”
