Bradley: I will repay Roma's faith in me

The versatile midfielder has spoken openly about the challenge he faces at his new club, and hopes to perform immediately at the top level for the Giallorossi

New Roma midfielder Michael Bradley has spoken for the first time since signing for the club, and has promised to repay the faith shown in him by coach Zdenek Zeman.

The American was a priority target for the Stadio Olimpico outfit, but his move looked in doubt two weeks ago as Chievo and Roma could not agree on which player to swap for the 24-year-old.

Eventually the two clubs agreed on youngster Adrian Stoian moving to the Flying Donkeys, with the USA international moving the opposite way.

"Thank you Roma. I will repay you," the 24-year-old told the Corriere dello Sport. 

"I am one who never gives up. Anywhere in midfield, I know the idea Zeman has [for the team]. I want to play an important part immediately."

The former Borussia Monchengladbach man has moved to the Giallorossi for €3.5 million, and looks to be just one of a number of signings Roma will make this summer.
