Ljungberg: Nowak's comments laughable

Philadelphia coach Peter Nowak seems to think that Freddie Ljungberg faked the whole knee-in-the-back incident that forced him off the pitch last week. If he is, he's going to great lengths: X-ray, MRI and questionable status for Saturday's game against New York.

(Here's the earlier blog post that outlined Nowak's comments.)

Ljungberg was asked today what he thought of Nowak's comments.

"What can I say? It's just laughable," Ljungberg responded. "When I heard about it I just laughed. I think it's too low and pathetic to respond, to be honest."
