Paul Pogba is “not working hard enough getting back”, says Clayton Blackmore, with there more an in-form Manchester United midfielder could be offering to the collective cause.Having endured a testing start to the 2018-19 campaign which ultimately led to him being benched by Jose Mourinho, a World Cup winner is currently enjoying a welcome upturn in form.He has delivered five goals and four assists across his last six Premier League outings, with his efforts helping Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to open his reign as interim United boss with eight successive victories.

Plaudits are raining down on the 25-year-old once more, with another all-action performance put in during the Red Devils’ recent 3-1 FA Cup fourth-round victory over Arsenal.Pogba has, however, been told that he could do even more, with former United defender Blackmore telling Love Sport Radio: “It’s a team game.”You can have fantastic individuals who can win you the game over and over again but if the team aren’t playing well… I was a little bit disappointed with Paul [against Arsenal].”He was really good going forward but he’s not working hard enough getting back.”I know he’s got [Ander] Herrera and [Nemanja] Matic there but I like to see the whole team working as hard as each other.”While suggesting that Pogba could do more for United, Blackmore admits the same accusation could not be levelled at Solskjaer.The Norwegian has made a remarkable impact since being appointed as interim successor to Mourinho, with calls for him to be handed the reins on a permanent basis now growing in intensity.”Whoever is going to come in won’t do as well as he’s doing now so why would you bring someone else in?” said Blackmore, who spent 10 years as part of United’s senior squad after emerging out of their youth system.”It’s not just him either. He’s got Mick Phelan in there. There was a lot said about when [David] Moyes came in and he got rid of Mick Phelan.”You lose, on the coaching side of it, pretty much everything we had before.”They’ve got great experience now there in terms of the coaching side and obviously playing at the club.”For me, it’s a no-brainer. It was a no-brainer a few weeks ago.”Solskjaer, Phelan and Pogba will be looking to make it nine wins in a row on Tuesday when United play host to Burnley in Premier League competition.

zoom The first cargo from the world’s first floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) project, owned by Malaysian oil and gas company Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas), is expected in the first quarter of next year.“We expect the first cargo of LNG to be available in the first quarter of 2016,” Petronas Vice President and Venture Director LNG Projects (Domestic) Abdullah Karim is quoted by Reuters as saying.The construction of the Petronas Floating LNG 1 (PFLNG 1) facility at the Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard in Okpo, South Korea is scheduled to be completed by March 2016.DSME completed the installation of all (21) topside modules onboard the Petronas’ FLNG facility at the end of March.The PFLNG1 vessel, also known as PFLNG SATU, will be moored in Malaysia’s Kanowit gas field, 180 kilometres offshore Sarawak and will produce 1.2 million tonnes of LNG per year.Petronas has appointed Technip and DSME as a consortium to jointly develop the PFLNG1 facility with LNG capacity of 1.2 mtpa, 365-metre length, 60-metre width and 33-metre height.The floating LNG facility is expected to change the landscape of the LNG business where the liquefaction, production, storage and offloading processes of LNG – previously only possible at onshore plants – will now be able to be carried out hundreds of kilometres away from land and closer to the offshore gas fields.World Maritime News Staff; Image: DSME
