Bradley: “I Needed A New Challenge”

Former Roma midfielder Michael Bradley spoke today regarding his move from the Giallorossi to Toronto FC.

“I considered the idea (of the MLS) when I saw Dempsey leave Europe for Seattle. Eventually, you find yourself needing to make a decision and assess what is best for your career. When I was at Roma, I felt like I needed a new challenge and a change of scenary. Also, since it was 6 months from the World Cup, I wanted to go somewhere where I was wanted and where I could play an important role. ”
