The former Borussia Monchengladbach and AS Roma man, and Seattle Sounder star Clint Dempsey, have taken a 'step back' in the eyes of Klinsmann since returning to MLS which prompted a fierce reaction from league Commissioner Don Garber.
Bradley admitted he was not too put off by the words from Klinsmann and plans to continue the same mindset as he has held throughout his entire professional career.
"I don't pay much attention to it, to be honest," said Bradley.
"I have thick skin and I have always had the mentality that as a professional you have to have such a commitment and concentration and determination in who you are and what you're all about that you're not willing to let anybody put you off that."
