Roma coach Zeman delighted with Michael Bradley in new role

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.”
