Plenty of Major League Soccer’s stars will be in and around New York City on Monday, as the MLS Media Day descends on Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey.
PST’s very own Mike Prindiville is out at RBA talking to Major League Soccer’s finest, so make sure to give him a follow to find out exactly what’s going on.
Earlier Prindi caught up and had a chat with Toronto FC and U.S. national team superstar Michael Bradley, read what he had to say here.
But really early this morning, well around 8:30am ET, Bradley and his USMNT colleague Omar Gonzalez were on the set of Good Morning America to chat about why both of them turned down opportunities in Europe to play in MLS.
Gonzalez, 24, talked about his decision to stay with the LA Galaxy (which was made a lot easier when he was handed that Designated Player contract) and Bradley discussed why he switched Rome for Toronto.
Bradley had the following to say about the USA’s chances in Brazil, and how he feels about being placed in a ‘Group of Death.’
“It’s exciting. When you get to the World Cup you know that to do well you are going to come up against tough teams and have to beat some of the best teams in the world. And for us the only difference this year is that the best teams in the world are coming at us right away. We feel good, we have respect for the other teams but we feel like we have made improved and made good strides as a team. We are confident and just can’t wait to get there.”
