Chelsea ban Eva Carneiro from attending games after Mourinho rant

Chelsea were down to 10 men after the keeper had been sent off, yet clung to a 2-2 scoreline.


Caneiro and head physiotherapist Jon Fearne rushed on to the pitch to give Eden Hazard treatment after he fell to the ground.

“You have to understand the game – even if you are a kit man, doctor or secretary on the bench”.

But Mourinho rebuked the duo on the touchline and accused them both of being “naive” as it put Chelsea in a vulnerable position defensively, especially as Hazard wasn’t actually seriously hurt. Which means the already shorthanded Chelsea had exclusively 9 males to stop Swansea from stealing a late victor.

In the moment, Mourinho’s outburst makes some sense.

Calling out staff docs in postgame feedback is a bit more questionable. Before the bust-up with Eva Carneiro, Mourinho also criticised goalkeeping coach Christophe Lollichon for speaking out of turn about Paris Saint-Germain.

Now we come to today.

Chelsea team doctor Eva Carneiro has reportedly been removed from bench duty on matchdays by Jose Mourinho following her actions on Saturday.

Chelsea first-team doctor Eva Carneiro has had her role with the club reduced in the wake of criticism by Jose Mourinho, sources have told ESPN FC.

Although it is unclear whether the 41-year-old will continue, she is not expected to be on the bench for the Blues’ next Premier League fixture against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Carneiro joined Chelsea in February 2009 and was promoted to the role of first-team doctor and assistant medical director by Andre Villas-Boas, one of Mourinho’s predecessors, in 2011.

It’s unattainable take this as something aside from a demotion, and simply as unimaginable to not hyperlink it from the occasions of this weekend.


Unsurprisingly, the club are facing a massive backlash over the decision.
