Guinea international Florentin Pogba admits his mother will find it difficult to watch him take on younger brother Paul in the Europa League.

On Thursday, Florentin, will play for St Etienne against Paul who plays for Manchester United.

It’s not going to be easy for her but at the same time what a fantastic moment it’ll be for her to see her sons playing out there,” the defender said.

“Maybe the best result for her will be a draw.” “But we’ll be going all out to get the best result for ourselves. Whoever wins she’ll be happy in some respect.”

Thursday’s match will be the first time the brothers, who grew up near the French capital Paris, have properly clashed on a football pitch.
