‘The man’s lost his marbles’ Laura Woods left shocked by Ally McCoist’s mistake during interview on TNT Sports

ALLY MCCOIST left Laura Woods stunned by calling Wilfried Zaha “world class” during a TNT Sports feature.

The “world class” debate has been raging on in recent weeks, since Rio Ferdinand claimed that Phil Foden can be considered as such but Bukayo Saka cannot.

Continuing the discourse, popular presenter Woods asked McCoist which Premier League players can be called “world class”.

The affable Scot, 61, replied: “You look at guys like Zaha, world class.”

Baffled by his answer, Woods said: “Zaha?!”

Laughing, McCoist clarified: “I meant (Mo) Salah!”

Struggling to contain her own laughter, Woods said: “Wilfried Zaha? That’s an interesting one to go straight to!”

McCoist then embraced his error, continuing: “It might be controversial but I’m going to start with Wilfried Zaha! He’s been a personal favourite of mine for a long time and I’m just going to continue in the controversial theme and I’m going with him.

“When did Wilfried Zaha become Mo Salah? Anyway, do you want to do that question again? Actually we should just leave it in and cause an absolute riot, shouldn’t we!

“The man’s lost his marbles! Get him off air immediately, get him in a home for old folk and we can send him flowers and go and visit him every Sunday afternoon – we can take him out for a walk on a Sunday!”

A cackling Woods responded: “I quite like it – I love that!”

Zaha, 31, left the Premier League last summer when his Crystal Palace contract expired.

He subsequently joined Galatasaray, and played against former club Manchester United in the Champions League earlier this term.

The winger has fallen out of favour of late, starting his side’s last four league matches on the bench.

He has managed 10 goals in all competitions this season, including one at Old Trafford.

Zaha has played 305 times in the Premier League, scoring 68 times and laying on 43 assists.

Salah, meanwhile, is having another sensational season – grabbing 19 goals and 10 assists.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is sweating on the Egyptian’s fitness ahead of tomorrow’s Carabao Cup final.

Woods, 36, was left in “real fear” after enduring two years of torment from stalker Harneet Kaur.

Kaur, 25, was sentenced to 14 months in prison, having sent vile messages to Laura including sick threats to kill her dog.
