Who are ya? New Aston Villa signing Michael Bradley
Our resident Aston Villa correspondent – Editor of AstonVillaBlog – gives us the lowdown on new signing Michael Bradley…
Villa have secured a loan deal for American midfielder Michael Bradley from Borussia Mönchengladbach for the rest of the season, so I thought I should really scrub up on Villa’s fourth US import. Interestingly the name Bradley links two of the current three with only Eric Lichaj spoiling the fun of having American’s Bradley Friedel, Bradley Guzan and now, Michael Bradley.
Michael is son of Bob, the US national team head coach who was hotly linked to the Villa job before Gerard Houllier. It was expected that if he were to join the club, the manager would have brought his son along to the club, and now it seems Michael is ready to make the move. Many will say this is merely another move by Randy Lerner, American, to showcase the nations talents in the Premier League but Bradley is a real prospect and is highly regarded in the US, often amongst the same breath as the likes of Landon Donavon and Clint Demspey. So here’s a little lowdown of some of the stats that you should know about the midfield man.
