There's some revisionist history going on here. Roma was not a fan of Bradley by the end. I remember reading numerous pieces saying he didn't understand how to dictate the tempo of a game and passed backwards too often (sound familiar?). The year before he was sold they had a lot of injuries in the center mid so he got every opportunity to impress but they tried to play him in a more advanced role which we all know is not his strength. He didn't do well there so the next year when their players were healthy again, he was not a regular starter, rumors are he was a bit of a malcontent, so they were happy to sell him to Toronto who was willing to overpay to become relevant. Honestly, I wish he had taken the deal to Fulham who was the other rumored club interested at the time because he was fine at Chievo and in Germany, Roma was just too high a level for him and there's no shame in that. We have about three non-keepers in US soccer history who could start regularly at Roma.
