Is there a way to disable that?

If you insist on using the official YouTube app, I'm unaware of any way to do what you want.
The best workaround is to use a different app to watch YouTube.
Firefox for Android lets you install extensions, such as uBlock Origin. If you do install uBlock Origin, know that it includes an 'element picker' feature. This feature lets you hide selected parts of your favorite websites. For example, you can use it to hide all recommendations, or all comments, on the YouTube website.
