Thursday’s match is set to see United midfielder Paul Pogba, 23, go up against his older brother.

He marked the “magical” encounter against younger brother by having the numbers 19 and six shaved into his hair – their squad numbers.

“The 19 is my squad number and the six is for him,” said Florentin. “It’s going to be a magical moment and I hope he and I enjoy it the best we can.”

Their mother, Yeo, will be at the first leg and next Wednesday’s return fixture in France, enjoying the “one-off” occasion to the maximum.

Mourinho said: “I think mother Pogba is in trouble, which is normal.

“It is not difficult for the lady to choose, it is impossible. I know from Paul that his mum wants a draw.

“But next week, one son will be happy and another will be sad. But only for their mum is it a problem.
