    According to the Roma statement, Bradley went right to work under the direction of the team’s new coach, Zdenek Zeman, along with his new teammates, including Gabriel Heinze, Claudio Pizarro, Aleandro Rosi and Francesco Totti. Bradley is being penciled in as a midfield replacement for Fernando Gago, an on-loan player who has been returned to Real Madrid.

    It will not be long until Bradley, who is now a mainstay in the midfield of the United States national team, returns home. Roma is scheduled to play three matches in the U.S.: Zaglebie Lubin of Poland in Chicago on Sunday, Liverpool in Boston three days later and El Salvador at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J., on July 27.

    Roma has been a consistent contender since, finishing second in the league six times and winning the Coppa Italia in ’07 and ’08. Last year the club was taken over by a consortium led by Boston businessman Thomas DiBenedetto, making it the first Italian team owned by an American. DiBenedetto, who also holds a stake in the group that owns the Boston Red Sox, has said from the start that he wanted a U.S. player at Roma. In Bradley, he has an American who is emerging as a world-class talent.

    Deployed as a defensive midfielder, Bradley earned rave reviews for his performances in Verona as he helped the Flying Donkeys to a respectable 10th-place finish in ‘11-12.

    Meanwhile, he proved his worth to Klinsmann, overcoming the coach’s initial skepticism with brilliant outings against Slovenia last November and in February’s 1-0 win over Italy in Genoa.

    That game, in addition to his consistent quality with Chievo, helped make Bradley a hot commodity in Italy. Clubs like Inter Milan, Napoli and Palermo reportedly were interested in him, and Chievo Sporting Director Giovanni Sartori said in June that was being “followed by half of Europe.”
