The Guinea worldwide is watching on at Old Trafford as his brother Paul, of Manchester United, and his twin Florentin, of Saint-Etienne, square off in Europa League action Thursday. They will enjoy to play against each other.

"This is nothing to focus on".

Mourinho said he has spoken to Paul, 23, about the prospect of facing his 26-year-old brother, and the Portuguese manager admitted he feels for the pair's mother, per Manchester United: "We spoke, but we spoke in a good way, in a amusing way".

"It was a good game I think, we were good collectively".

"But I think only for their mum it is a little bit of a problem. It's impossible for her to choose", the United manager said.

The tie will also see Paul Pogba do battle against his brother Florentin, who has played for Saint-Etienne since 2012. If we draw against Blackburn we will have another match against them at Old Trafford and then I think April and May will be very very hard - so hopefully it is very very very hard'.

Manchester United return to Europa League action this evening (8.05pm kick-off) when they host French side Saint-Etienne at Old Trafford. He knows what it's like in our family. "Paul is excited and Florentin for sure the same".

Lyon failed to make it out of their Champions League group, finishing third behind Juventus and Sevilla to parachute into this competition, while AZ came second in their Europa League group behind Zenit St Petersburg.

"Maybe the best result for her will be a draw".

If you ask us, Thursdays have always been better than Tuesdays or Wednesdays.

Copenhagen look a great bet on their Champions League performances this season, having been unlucky to be eliminated from Group G with nine points.

Saint-Etienne may be fifth in Ligue 1 and United sixth in the Premier League, but Jose Mourinho's star-studded team have gone 16 league games without defeat.
