Louis van Gaal would leave Manchester United in a good position if he was to leave Old Trafford in the summer, says Paul Merson.
The Arsenal great is convinced Van Gaal's policy of blooding young players has been one of the Dutchman’s biggest influences at United.
Merson said on Sky Sports' Soccer Saturday: "If Louis van Gaal loses his job, he leaves Manchester United in a good position.
"The young players they've bought in are really good young players for the future. He hasn't bought for himself, he's bought for that club.
"He didn't buy people to do this and that, he's got people in for the future of the football club. If he does lose his job, he leaves a team that will get better and better as the years go on."
