"Well, at Milan he’d turn up to training in a helicopter.
"He lived in Parma and his wife knew how to fly one. He’d step out like James Bond.
"If anyone lived with style, it was Carlo."
Pato played for Ancelotti between 2007 and 2009, when he first emerged as one of Europe's brightest talents.
In 2011, however, he started to have issues with injuries that curtailed his development.
The forward left the Serie A giants in 2013 as he moved back to his homeland with Corinthians.
Pato would later join Chelsea on loan but only featured twice in the Premier League, scoring one goal.
He went on to have spells at Villarreal, Tianjin Tianhai, and Orlando City, he is now playing for Sao Paulo.
His contract expires in December, though there is an option to extend it for a further 12 months.
