AS Roma coach Zdenek Zeman was full of praise for USA midfielder Michael Bradley after victory over Pescara.

Bradley was played in a defensive role in front of the defence by Zeman.

The coach said: "Bradley is a central midfielder and for 40 years I have been playing with this type of figure in front of the defence. I don't see this as an enormous change from Tachtsidis. We also had to control Juan Fernando Quintero and we did that comfortably.

"The performance was better on a defensive level than attacking. At times Daniel Osvaldo and Mattia Destro keep the ball a bit too long, but they will improve their rapport on the field."
