Jose Mourinho hopes to upset one of his star midfielder’s guiding influences when Manchester United host Saint-Etienne in the Europa League on Thursday.
“We [Mourinho and Paul Pogba] spoke but we spoke in a good way, a funny way,” he told a pre-match news conference.
“I think it’s a good, nice destiny. I think only Mum Pogba is in a little bit of trouble, which is normal.”
“It is difficult for the lady to choose… not difficult, impossible.””I know from Paul that the mum wants a draw but next week one son will be happy and another one will be sad.”
“Only for the mum is it a little bit of problem, for them I think they will enjoy playing against each other.”
“Paul is excited, Florentin for sure the same. So it is a good thing.”
