Florentin Pogba shaved his brother's number into his hair ahead of the Pogba derby

Possibly the most interesting thing about Manchester United’s Europa League game against Saint-Etienne is that the Pogba brothers could well face one another.

The 26-year-old Florentin Pogba has decided to mark the occasion with a tribute to his brother in appropriate fashion – he’s only gone and had his Paul’s number shaved into his hair, hasn’t he!

What a lovely gesture – the brother of the most expensive footballer in history has his own number, 19, shaved into the other side.

Manchester United are unbeaten in the league since October, and will go into the game as favourites to progress to the next round.

United centre-back Eric Bailly was in no mood to indulge the occasion.

Meanwhile, manager Jose Mourinho felt it would provide a dilemma for the Pogbas’ mother, but not the brothers.

Someone has to progress to the next round Mama Pogba. They can’t both go through.
