Chelsea team doctor Eve Carneiro responds to Jose Mourinho Criticism

Eve Carneiro, Jose Mourinho


Eva Carneiro, who is in her 5th season in her role, was accused of not understanding the game by the Chelsea manager for effectively reducing his side to nine men when she went on to the pitch to assess Hazard's injury. Mourinho shouted at her and the Physiotherapist Jon Fearn when they went on to the field and said afterwards.

 "I wasn't happy with my medical staff because even if you are a medical doctor or secretary on the bench you have to understand the game. You have to know that you have one player less and if you go to the pitch to assist a player then you must be sure that a player has a serious problem. I was sure that Eden didn't have a serious problem. He had a knock and was very tired. My medical department left me with eight fit players in a counter-attack after a set-piece and we were worried we didn't have enough players left."

Eva Responded to Mourinho criticism with a post on her Facebook..

How can Chelsea even think about axing Eva off the bench when she might be the best member of the Chelsea team on there.

UPDATE Via: BBC SPORT

Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro has decided to leave the club - six weeks after criticism from manager Jose Mourinho.

Carneiro had her role downgraded after Mourinho said his medical staff were "naive" for treating Eden Hazard during the 2-2 draw with Swansea on 8 August.

Chelsea asked Carneiro, 42, to return to work, but she has decided not to and is now considering her legal position.

The Football Association is looking into a complaint that Mourinho used abusive or sexist language towards her.

Chelsea say they do not comment on internal staffing matters.

Heather Rabbatts, chair of the FA's Inclusion Advisory Board, expressed her "sadness and anger" at the news of Carneiro's departure.
