When Manchester United faces St-Etienne on Thursday night, Eric Bailly insists the Premier League club will be ignoring the family subplot on show.
“We know it’s a special occasion for the Pogba family and the Pogba brothers,” Bailly said Wednesday, as quoted by the Daily Mirror. “We’re also aware that it’s a very serious knockout stage game in the Europa League.
“They’ve been having a bit of fun, he’s mentioned it a little bit in training, but the focus is on St-Etienne.
“We know it’s going to be a tough game. They are going to be a threat.”
But the other route to the competition would be winning the Europa League.
Thursday night’s tie against French club St-Etienne is the first of two legs, with the reverse fixture taking place on February 22.
