Sebastien Le Toux did not ride quietly into the night, even if he may have tried to. As Le Toux was saying his goodbyes at a local haunt, a reporter caught up with the former Philadelphia Union forward. Le Toux didn't hold much back.
By Le Toux's telling, it would appear that his relationship with the Union started to deteriorate after he tried to initiate talks about a contract extension. He was heading into the final year of his contract and was apparently looking for about $400,000. The Union, apparently, weren't interested.
"It had gotten to the point where I said to them, to Nick, to Peter, to everyone, ‘Just give me a contract and I will sign it,’" said Le Toux, who spoke exclusively with the Daily Times. "I wanted to stay in Philly. I didn’t care about the money."
Le Toux went on to all but accuse the Union of being cheap, and said the team was none too pleased with him after he left the trial they had arranged with Bolton about three weeks earlier than expected. Upon returning to the Union, Le Toux said Nowak made his displeasure clear.
"I couldn’t even memorize everything he said because I was so surprised to hear it."
These quotes essentially confirm the rumors that had been circulating once news of Le Toux's trade started leaking out. As well as Le Toux's numbers were in Philadelphia, his relationship with Nowak was just as bad.
"I would be happy to just retire than play for Peter again," Le Toux said.
