Paul Merson: Top four or burst for Louis van Gaal.

  • Arsenal legend says its top four or bye bye LVG.

  • I think Jose Mourinho will be next Man Utd boss, says Merson.

Arsenal great Paul Merson is convinced Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal will be sacked if the Red Devils don't seal a top-four spot.

United must win their last game at home to Bournemouth and hope their noisy neighbours Man City lose at Swansea at the Liberty stadium on Sunday to have a chance of securing a Champions League place.

“I think that will be it, he will be gone," Merson told Sky Sports News HQ when asked if Man United fail to make the top four. "I think Jose Mourinho will be the next manager.

"If they want to get anywhere near where they want to be, they need to do it quickly, and there is no manager that can do things quickly like Mourinho.

"LVG has a year left, if you keep him for three months and he is not doing well then whoever comes in takes over a struggling team, that’s no good."
