[AMERICANS ABROAD] While fellow U.S. national team midfielders Jermaine Jones and Ricardo Clark didn't move from their German clubs, Michael Bradley got his wish and left Borussia Moenchengladbach. He talks via video on what the move to Italian club Chievo means ...

"I am ready to give everything to Chievo to have a good season," says Bradley.

If he plays for Chievo, he'll become only the second U.S. international in the modern era to play in Serie A.

Alexi Lalas played for Padova in 1994-95 and part of the 1995-96 season before joining MLS for its launch.

Oguchi Onyewu never played for AC Milan in Serie A before hurting his knee in October 2009.

Roy Lassiter played on loan to Genoa in 1996-97, but it was in Serie B at the time.

Italian national team striker Giuseppe Rossi was 12 when he left New Jersey to join Parma. Except for a brief spell in 2007, he has played his entire career in England and Spain.

At least two Italian-Americans from the New York metropolitan area -- Alfonso Negro and Armando Frigo -- played in Serie A in the 1930s and 1940s.
