Pogba vs Pogba
Manchester United’s Europa League adventure will continue with a round of 32 tie against St Etienne, a match up that Paul Pogba will relish as it sees him taking on his brother Florentin.
According to Dailymail, Tottenham will travel to face Belgium club Gent in the first leg having entered the competition following their third-placed finish in the Champions League group stage.
United will be away for their second leg on Wednesday February 22 in accordance with the principles set by the Club Competitive Committee, as local rivals Lyon are also in the competition.
The level of intrigue in United’s tie with St Etienne is heightened by the prospect of former Juventus midfielder Pogba facing his brother over two legs.
Florentin, a Guinea international defender, is not to be confused with his twin Matthias, who plays for Sparta Rotterdam.
The 26-year-old was linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer with both Sunderland and Hull expressing interest.
With the January transfer window opening in three weeks’ time, there is the possibility he may not be at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard for much longer.
The Ligue 1 outfit are eighth in their domestic league but were unbeaten in their six Europa League group games, winning three and drawing three in matches against Anderlecht, Mainz and Qabala.
