Chelsea doctor hits back at Jose Mourinho on Facebook

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was not happy with his medical staff after the team drew against Swansea City in the season opener. After the match the manager had blasted team doctor Eva Carneiro for treating Eden Hazard on the pitch.

Jose Mourinho said in his post match reaction: “I was unhappy with my medical staff. They were impulsive and naive.

“Whether you are a kit man, doctor or secretary on the bench you have to understand the game.

“You have to know you have one player less and to assist a player you must be sure he has a serious problem. I was sure Eden did not have a serious problem. He had a knock. He was tired.”

Eva Carneiro had rushed to the field to treat Eden Hazard who suffered a small injury. The doctor treated Hazard off the field as Chelsea were reduced to 9 men on the pitch. Thibaut Courtois was sent off in the beginning of the second half for tackling Bafetimbi Gomis terribly.

Mourinho stressed on the fact that he expects his coaching and non-technical staff to have an understanding of the game. 

Repling to Mourinho’s public attack on Eva, the lady doctor hit back at his manager on Facebook. He updated her status writing “I would like to thank the general public for their overwhelming support. Really very much appreciated.”

Even though Eva’s status did not diretly pointed out Mourinho’s name but it was evident that she did not like what her manager had said and she appreciated the support from the general fans.

Her Facebook is given below: 

 

I would like to thank the general public for their overwhelming support. Really very much appreciated.
