Michael Bradley may not garner as many headlines as Landon Donovan, but the midfielder and son of former U.S. National Team Coach Bob Bradley is arguably the most valuable player the U.S. has.
Bradley has now been transferred to Chievo Verona, a top-flight northern Italian club that has achieved amazing results over the past decade when it first made its debut in Serie A. Chievo returned to Serie B for just one season during this run and the club consistently gives trouble to some of the top teams in Italy.
Chievo didn't achieve professional status until the late 1980s when it was promoted to Italy's fourth division. The club began out of a neighborhood that is a small fraction of Verona. An estimated 4,500 live in the Chievo district.
