Ibrahimovic provided the assist for Mkhitaryan's stunning scorpion kick against Sunderland on Boxing Day, which won the Carling award for December last week.
"The pass needed to be perfect, so it went good," said Ibrahimovic.
The Swede revealed all to United fans Toby and Paul, who enjoyed a dream day at the Aon Training Complex to present Mkhitaryan with his award after winning a Carling competition.
