SCOTTISH PREMIER League side Hearts is looking for a new manager and, according to a report, Union boss Peter Nowak has thrown his name into the ring.
A report released Saturday by the Edinburgh Evening News, claims Nowak, along with former Olympiakos coach Oleg Potasov, have submitted resumes for the vacant position left by former Hearts boss Paulo Sergio, who rejected a new contract offer.
The Daily News contacted Nowak via text regarding the claim, which he replied was "absolute false." Nowak and the Union took on Reading United Saturday night but Nowak watched from a booth as a reserve-heavy Union side dispatched its minor league affiliate, 3-2. However, Barry Anderson, the author of the report, is sticking to his story. When asked via Twitter of Nowak's chances of getting the position, Anderson, using the Twitter handle @8Barryanderson, responded, "I'm not sure of his chances. I just know he applied."
