Doctor Eva leaves Chelsea….

Eva Carneiro and Jon Fearn

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.
