According to the report on GOAL, Carlo Ancelotti explained that he initially thought that Ibrahimovic's career was coming to an end when he moved to America from Manchester United.

Before moving to the Major League Soccer, Ibrahimovic was in brilliant form for Manchester United as he helped the Red Devils to win the Europa League title and the EFL Cup.

“When Ibra went to play in America I thought it was the final goodbye.
“He is immortal, like Cristiano Ronaldo. Continuing to play is easy but they don’t just play, they always score and that's not easy.
“It never happened that I told Cristiano not to play because he is a better player than the others. You don’t have to be a scientist to understand it.”

Ibrahimovic's superb form so far this season in the Serie A has taken AC Milan to the top of the table with 17 points after seven games and they have not lost any match.
