Pogba brothers set to square off in Europa League

FOOTBALL: Manchester United will meet Saint-Etienne in the last 32 of the Europa League, sending the Pogba brothers on a collision course.

United will roll out the red carpet for the French club on February 17 (AEST) at Old Trafford, pitting world-record signing Paul Pogba against his older brother Florentin for the first time.

Paul, who signed to the Red Devils for $116 million in August from Juventus, represents France in international football, while Florentin plays for Guinea, but the brothers have never clashed on the field.

"That's a nice thing. Paul was already laughing about it and for sure his brother is also laughing,” United manager Jose Mourinho said after the draw was announced in Nyon.
