Jamie O’Hara storms out talkSPORT studio as ‘idiot’ football fan winds him up

Former Tottenham star Jamie O'Hara stormed out of the talkSPORT studio after a heated debate with "idiot" co-host Jason Cundy.

The midfielder-turned-pundit had heard enough from Chelsea legend Cundy when they were on air together on Tuesday (March 14) night. O'Hara had contested his opinion that Martin Odegaard is the best No. 10 in the Premier League currently.

He argued that Manchester City maestro Kevin De Bruyne was still top dog, leading to accusations of bias. Cunday said: "It's fair. Odegaard this season has… I've just realised it's because it's Arsenal isn't it? And you're bitter about Spurs at the minute. What's going on?"

O'Hara hit back: "It's nothing to do with Arsenal. I'll tell you what's going on – I've been sitting here for 18 months having to work with this absolute idiot of a man who puts Odegaard ahead of Kevin De Bruyne.

"Have you just watched De Bruyne play tonight? He's put on a masterclass. You're telling me if there was a cup final tomorrow, you wouldn't want Kevin De Bruyne in your team?

"You'd take Odegaard, whose had a great season don't get me wrong. Kevin De Bruyne, unbelievable for the last five seasons. Right now, this season?"

Cundy stuck to his guns, responding: "Odegaard. Jay, face the music. I've told you. Stand up now and say, 'My name is Jamie O'Hara, I'm a Spurs fan and Arsenal will win the title.' Just stand up and say it."

That infuriated O'Hara, who fumed: "Oh Jason. Honestly mate. It's like working with a brick wall. I can't deal with this anymore, I need a break, I need a coffee, I've got to leave the office."

He duly took off his headphones and left the studio. De Bruyne, 31, has racked up four goals and 19 assists in all competitions this season, while Odegaard, 24, has ten goals and six assists to his name.
