Manchester United are looking to continue their UEFA Europa League hot streak as they host St. Etiennne in the round of 32 Thursday night. As you’ve already heard numerous times, this is the de facto Pogba Cup, as ASSE brings Florentin Pogba to Old Trafford where he’ll square off against his brother Paul Pogba.
The smack talk started up earlier this week, with Florentin putting some tough talk out there. United forward Anthony Martial had a great take on this ultra competitive sibling rivalry.
Jose Mourinho addressed the media yesterday, and as you would have guessed, Pogba vs. Pogba did indeed come up as a topic of discussion. It turns out that their mother is rooting for a draw, have a watch below:
"Mum Pogba is in a bit of trouble!"?
