'Gladbach Coach: Michael Bradley Is An Option Again

Michael Bradley is back in the plans of his club coach and could start Tuesday for the injured Thorben Marx.
Michael Bradley hasn't seen minutes for his club team, Borussia Monchengladbach, since coming off at halftime against against Werder Bremen on Aug. 23. The United States international reacted poorly to being substituted so early in the game and fell out with coach Michael Frontzeck.

However, the two seem to have buried their differences and the 21-year-old is back in contention for a spot.

Gladbach have a German Cup game on Tuesday against MSV Duisburg, and it looks like Bradley will get the nod. Thorben Marx picked up a thigh injury in the last Bundesliga match, a 2-4 loss to TSG Hoffenheim.

"He, like some others, is an option," said coach Michael Frontzeck, according to German website Fohlen-Hautnah.de. "Michael, since the two international games, has trained very well and has made a very, very good impression. He is, of course," an option.

Bradley started for the U.S. in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying, helping the Americans beat both El Salvador and Trinidad & Tobago to take over first spot in the Hexagonal table.
