Bradley flattered by Valencia interest

Roma midfielder Michael Bradley is flattered by rumours of Valencia's interest, according to his agent.

The American international has reportedly caught the eye of the Spanish club, but despite the positive reaction, the 25-year-old will not be moving to La Liga says Paolo Alberto Faccini.

“When there is an interest in a client, it is always nice,” he told Calcio Mercato. “But right now, it does not seem appropriate to speak about other clubs.

“Bradley, I hope, is close to becoming one of the pillars of this Roma team.”

He also commented on his goalscoring return to the Giallorossi side on Sunday against Atalanta, and the relationship with Coach Zdenek Zeman.

“I think it was one of Michael's best performances,” he said. “If we evaluate it in context – he was coming back from a long injury at a time of difficulty for the team. And he scored his first goal for the club.

“I was at home with him after the game, and he was overjoyed. He can give much more though, and I am convinced he will become a regular in the team.

“Yesterday I heard Zeman say he was glad of the commitment and determination with which Bradley trains. Michael has a great relationship with the boss and believes in his methods.”
