Welcome back to the Premier League, look forward to facing you again my friend,” Mikel wrote to Pogba on Twitter along with a video of him nutmegging the Frenchman with a backheel during a 2014 FIFA World Cup game.

Mikel and Pogba played against each other in the second round clash between Nigeria and France in the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.

It was the new Manchester United signing that came out tops that day, scoring in the 79th minute before a Joseph Yobo own goal sealed a 2-0 victory for France.
