Senior club doctor Eva Carneiro has parted ways with the club following her controversy with the club’s coach Jose Mourinho on the opening day of the Premier League. Carneiro rushed on the pitch to attend to Chelsea forward Eden Hazard who had been knocked down, but her actions didn’t go down well with the coach who referred to it as being naïve and impulsive. According to him, she slowed the momentum of the game and allowed the hosts recover from the pressure being piled on them by Chelsea. The blues went on to draw the match 2-2 as they were temporarily reduced to ten men while Carneiro attended to Eden Hazard by the sidelines.
Although the former blues doctor is set to take her case with the club to court after departing the club, she even shared a picture she tagged as her new dawn on her facebook page while thanking the fans for their support all through the incidence. Since the incidence, Carneiro has been suspended from performing her match day duties and reduced to working with players at the training pitch. Board member of the English FA, Heathers Rabbats has stated that she hopes to see Carneiro back in the football world as soon as possible. She also went ahead to state that Carneiro was just a doctor performing her duties and that the way she was being treated by the club send out the wrong message about the safety of players when their medical support is compromised.
