Vieira hopes Ince can help open the door to more black managers working in England.
He told the Mail on Sunday: "'I hope Paul Ince will do really well so it opens the door for black managers. They deserve a chance, but I don't see myself as a manager after I finish playing.
"It's a really difficult position and just because you're a really successful player doesn't mean you'll be a successful manager.
"I don't see myself spending extra time to prepare for matches. You need to show a lot of commitment. There is so much hard work for a manager behind the scenes."
