Paul Pogba’s brother Florentin joins Elche on trial

Segunda side Elche have confirmed that Florentin Pogba – brother of Manchester United star Paul – has joined the club on trial with a view to a permanent move.

The 28-year-old began his career at Celta Vigo and has won 21 caps for Guinea at international level, while last season he played for Turkish club Gençlerbirliği.

Florentin’s twin brother Mathias played for Tours and younger brother Paul plays for Manchester United and the French national team.

The defender is most well-known in European football for spending six seasons at French top flight club Saint-Etienne.

Elche are currently struggling in Spain’s second tier, sitting 17th in the division – just two places above the relegation zone.
