    Nowak returns for second shot vs. Chelsea

    CHESTER, Pa. – For what seemed like 25 minutes, Peter Nowak sat alone inside the locker room at Toyota Park, waiting for his team to arrive, puzzled by where everyone could be.

    Nowak had just coached the 2006 MLS All-Stars to a memorable 1-0 win over Chelsea FC, and left the field shortly after the final whistle blew, stopping only to wish then-Chelsea manager José Mourinho good luck. What he didn’t realize is that the members of the winning team remained on the field to be honored for their victory.

    “It’s always a great honor to coach the all-star game,” Nowak said. “2006 was a long time ago … but I think that was one of the few wins against José Mourinho and Chelsea at that time.”

    What allowed the 2006 MLS All-Stars to beat a powerful Chelsea side that featured, among other stars, Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard, Michael Ballack, Michael Essien and John Terry?

    It wasn’t the coaching, Nowak said.
