[Toronto FC midfielder Michael Bradley speaks in a post-match news conference about the team and city’s joy at reaching the Major League Soccer Cup Final for the first time in club history after defeating Montreal Impact 7-5 on aggregate in the Eastern Conference Championship] I dropped my son off at school this morning and I saw every kid that walked into that elementary school had a TFC jersey on and most of the parents as well. You could feel it in the city that people have really taken notice, people are proud and excited. Tonight was a speical night and ten days from now we want to do one better

[Michael Bradley comments on the appointment of his father Bob Bradley as Los Angeles FC’s first ever head coach] For 33 games next year I’ll be LAFC’s biggest fan, there’s no two ways about that, but I’m not going anywhere. I love Toronto. Toronto’s my home. Toronto’s my club, and I’ve never been more committed to trying to finish what I went there for, which was to win, to hold up trophies

[Jozy Altidore still questionable, but ready to help Toronto FC] Jozy can play. Jozy can not play and you can put somebody on for him in, more-or-less have it be a straight swap; and Jozy can not play and you can find a different way or two to finagle things

We have enough experience with all three of those scenarios, we’ve worked through all three of them. And now over the next day or two, we’ll figure out exactly how he is feeling, whether he is good to start, to come off the bench, and then figure out from there what the best way to go about things is. We’ll be ready regardless.

[Midfielder Michael Bradley says that President Donald Trump is ‘completely empty’, adding that there ‘isn’t a moral bone in his body’] We have a president who is completely empty. There isn’t a moral bone in his body. There’s no leadership. There’s no leadership from the president, there’s no leadership from the Republican senators who have sat back and been totally complicit in everything he’s done for the last three and a half years. I’m angry, I’m horrified, I’m sad and I’m determined to do anything and everything I can to try to be a part of the fix. Because it has to end. And we all have to be part of that fix. If we want any chance to start to fix those things, then Trump can’t be president, it’s as simple as that

[The USMNT midfielder says that the last week has only further illustrated how important it is for Americans to make their opinions heard and vote in their federal and local elections] I just hope that people are able to go to the polls in November and think about more than just what is good for them, more than what is good for their own status, their own business, their own tax return. I hope that people can go to the polls and understand that in so many ways, the future of our country and the future of our democracy is at stake. We need as many people as possible to understand that at a real level, to think about what four more years with Trump as president, what that would mean, how terrible that would be for so many people.
