Eva Carneiro: Doctor set to be offered role at Charlton Athletic

Charlton are hoping to appoint former Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro once her legal dispute with the Blues is settled.

Carneiro is seeking a claim for constructive dismissal against Jose Mourinho following her acrimonious departure from Stamford Bridge.

And according to the London Evening Standard, Carneiro will be offered a role at the Valley to work alongside first team physio Erol Umut and club doctor John Fraser at the Championship strugglers.

The 42-year-old publicly fell out with Mourinho after being criticised for treating Eden Hazard on the opening day of the season, which left Chelsea with only nine players on the field for a brief period of time.

Following the match, the Portuguese labelled Carneiro and physio Jon Fearn “impulsive and naive”, and told the pair they were axed from match-day activities.

While Fearn continues to work at the club, the doctor did not return to the club’s training ground and officially quit her post in September.
