Paul Pogba will face his brother Florentin when the Europa League resumes next year.
Manchester United have drawn St. Etienne in the next stage of the tournament, a match-up which pits the world’s most expensive player against his own flesh and blood.
It should be an enjoyable game for the Pogba brothers, and new United manager Jose Mourinho revealed that the Red Devils midfielder was pretty happy when he realised that he would be sharing the field with Florentin this season – providing neither of them get injured and both are picked on the night!
Speaking in a press conference on Monday, the Portuguese stated that the Frenchman – as well as his brother – laughed upon receiving the news.

Might not be so funny if Florentin’s side come out on top though, but the boys’ mother won’t be disappointed either way.
In the meantime, United will focus on domestic competition, with a busy period about to start and a top four finish in jeopardy.
