Piers Morgan Clashes With 'Sexist Pig' Jason Cundy On Good Morning Britain

Piers Morgan went head to head with former Chelsea player Jason Cundy, after the sportsman claimed that he couldn't bear to listen to women football commentators' 'high pitched' voices...

Jason's comments didn't bode well with Piers, who fired back at the professional football player, quickly branding him a 'sexist pig'.

The reason why 48-year-old Jason would prefer a man commentating on football? It's just his 'personal preference' and has 'nothing to do with her insight, knowledge or her ability to do the job'. Right.

Good Morning Britain host Piers and Susanna Reid were chatting to their guests about women in football, after Vicki Sparks became the first woman to commentate at 2018's World Cup.

Jason attempted to back up his point though, reasoning: "For 90 minutes I would rather, prefer, to listen to a male voice. I consume a lot of football, to listen to that voice.

"It's like would you prefer to listen to Ed Sheeran or Celine Dion?"

Susanna also told the Chelsea football player that he better start getting used to hearing women football commentators at matches too.

Piers and Susanna weren't the only people feeling infuriated by Jason's opinions though, and viewers of the ITV show flocked to Twitter to have a go at the football pro.

One person fumed: "Let's hope Jason Cundy is not representing all men out there @GMB Why on earth some men have a problem with female commentators is totally beyond me!"

"I don't think Jason Cundy should be allowed on GMB because I don't like the sound of his voice,plus he talks absolutely garbage. Fact," declared another.

While a third vented: "Jason Cundy on what an absolute disgrace the 50's called and want him back with his sexist views ... don't like the sound of a woman's voice !? His mum would be so proud .. ."

Whether you like it or not, women football commentators are here to stay.
