Michael Bradley raised his stock in the eyes of most US national team observers during the sqaud's World Cup Qualifiers last week, but the highest praise might well be that of New York Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch.
Marsch spoke to reporters earlier this week to give his glowing review of how good Bradley has been for the US, not only during this recent run, but also throughout his career. Marsch even went so far to suggest that the Toronto FC midfielder deserves to be considered as the top American player of all-time.
“I think Michael should start to enter into the conversation for the best American player ever,” said Marsch. “His game is so complete. He has become such an amazing leader for that team. He’s been fun to watch.”
