Ince is backing Ibrahimovic to steal the show when United host Manchester City on Saturday.
He told Paddy Power: “When you play with Man United you've got to have an ego. I've seen 'Zlats' talking about the perception people have that he is arrogant. Fine.
“When you play for the best teams in the world, you have to be arrogant. You have to believe that you're the best player, otherwise you wouldn't be at Man United or Man City or any of the elite European clubs.
“It's how the gaffer controls those egos in the dressing room that's important. The challenge is channeling all that self-belief and making it work for the team."
