Ibra: Ancelotti Hard To Replace

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic believes that it would be difficult for the club to replace coach Carlo Ancelotti.

The Italian helped the capital club claim their first Ligue 1 title since 1994 and has now admitted that he would be interested in leaving amid speculation that Real Madrid are interested in his signature.

Ibra was signed by the former Chelsea man and says that he has been highly impressed by the way Ancelotti manages his players.

“I have never had a coach like him," he told Telefoot. "His method of coaching is the best. He puts responsibility on the players and I like this.

"But I don’t know anything about his future. (If he leaves) we need a top coach who can lead a continental-competing team. And that is not easy. Only the very best coaches can do it.

"I do not want Ancelotti to go. For me, he has done a fantastic job. I have had numerous coaches but not like him. He has a special relationship with players that make him the ideal guy for this job. And he is elegant."

The Swede also said that although he has bagged 29 goals in 33 appearances ahead of their final game of the season, it has not been an easy campaign.

"It was not easy for me at the beginning," he said. "(Sporting director) Leonardo warned me that PSG are not Milan. This year was not easy.

"(However) I have this confidence in me, it makes me think I can succeed wherever I go. I hope to score even more next season - that was always my goal."
