Bradley says “the quality continues to get better”.
Returning to play in the USA against MLS All-Stars, Michael Bradley believes the quality of the team he will face as a Roma player is all the better thanks to the positive development of the league.
Bradley left the Metrostars (now New York Red Bulls) in 2006 for Heerenveen in the Netherlands. This led to a move to Germany and Borussia Mönchengladbach, followed by a brief loan spell at Aston Villa.
He then departed for Italy, spending a season at Chievo before signing with three-time Serie A winners A.S. Roma, whose midfield he will likely play in on Wednesday.
Bradley, who rose to prominence under the coaching of his father, Bob Bradley, has become a regular both for Roma and the national team, and has pointed to the growth of fans and building of stadiums as key points in the development of the MLS.
“I think a lot of that is thanks to the MLS and the quality of the players that are playing here week in and week out,” Bradley said.
“And I think it’s a very positive thing with everybody, because at the end of the day we’re all trying to grow the game in this country, make the league better and make the national team better.”
A.S. Roma and The MLS All-Stars will meet tomorrow evening at Sporting Park in Kansas City.
