The whole Eva Carneiro-Jose Mourinho saga has been quiet for some time now. Too quiet, some might say.
Well, as it turns out, Eva Carneiro might be contemplating legal action against Jose Mourinho and Chelsea for the way she was treated. According to reports published in Mirror:
“Suspended Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro is reportedly planning to take legal action following her row with manager Jose Mourinho.
“Both Carneiro and first-team physio Jon Fearn fell out with the Blues boss after rushing on to treat Eden Hazard late on in the 2-2 draw with Swansea in August.
“FIFA’s Medical Committee will review the case on Friday, with the outcome determining whether any legal action is likely to take place.
“Should a return to her previous responsibilities prove impossible, Carneiro is likely to initiate legal proceedings against Chelsea.”
There are also reports pointing to the fact that “sexism” could form a part of this case.
It all started when Jose Mourinho screamed furiously at the medical department during Chelsea’s draw against Swansea. Blues, battling with 10 men, had Eden Hazard down and Mourinho was furious with Carneiro and Fearn for running on to the pitch because that left us with just 8 men on a Swansea counter-attack.
Mourinho also criticized the duo in the post match conference, labelling them as “naive”. Now, it remains to be seen how FIFA Medical Committee review this case and move forward.
Hopefully, there’s no legal action involved. Don’t we already have a million problems to deal with?
