Among all the controversies that Mourinho and Chelsea have managed to transpire on themselves this season (and it has only been a couple of months!), the Eva Carneiro situation has rolled the most number of eyes.
As you would remember, Eva Carneiro, along with Jon Fearn were publicly criticized by Mourinho after the game against Swansea and were subsequently demoted from their role. The situation created a lot of smoke as Mourinho was seen screaming at our medical team during the end moments of the game.
However, after nearly a month, it seems like Jon Fearn and Eva Carneiro could return back to their job and may also feature on the Chelsea bench in he game against Arsenal. According to reports:
“Dr Eva Carneiro, who was banned from the Chelsea bench after being criticized by manager Jose Mourinho, has been told to report for work at the club’s training ground on Friday morning.
“Carneiro has not been seen at Chelsea since the incident on August 8, possibly through the legal advice she has taken from law firm Mishcon de Reya, but has been informed that she needs to return to duty now.”
“Fearn has not, as yet, resumed his place on the Chelsea bench but is expected to eventually do so. Whether Carneiro is able to do the same would appear to remain in doubt although there have been claims the duo will be in place for Saturday’s Premier League match at home to Arsenal.”

Seems like a good news, right? However, everything is not so rosy as far as this situation is concerned. Jose Mourinho might be on the verge being charged for using the offensive language against our medical staff during the game against Swansea:
“The Football Association has confirmed it is investigating a complaint that Chelsea manager José Mourinho used abusive language during the incident in the opening game against Swansea that saw club doctor Eva Carneiro and first-team physiotherapist Jon Fearn stripped of their matchday duties.”

If Jose is found guilty, the Portuguese can serve up to 5 match ban, which given our current position in the Premier League, isn’t such a good idea!
