Eva Carneiro: Set to take up role at medical clinic in Gibraltar

Former Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro, who was controversially involved in a row with former Blues boss Jose Mourinho, has professionally disengaged from the world of football. 

Carneiro left Stamford Bridge in 2015 and still tied up in an employment tribunal having failed to reach an agreement with Chelsea or Mourinho regarding personal damages.

Carneiro is claiming constructive dismissal and sexual discrimination against the Premier League champions after entering the pitch to treat Eden Hazard against Swansea, sparking a backlash from Mourinho, who was then the manager of the club.

Carneiro and physiotherapist Jon Fearn were branded as “impulsive and naive” by Mourinho in his post-match interview, and also hinted that they did not “understand the game”.

Now Carneiro is set to return to Gibraltar to take up a role at a medical clinic.

A post on the Gibraltar Specialist Medical Clinc said: “As Sports Medicine and Exercise Medicine Consultant Doctor Eva specialises in the treatment of athletes and other physically active individuals. Sports and Exercise medicine physicians have extensive education in musculoskeletal medicine.

“She is able to treat injuries such as muscle, ligament, tendon and bone problems, but may also treat chronic illnesses that can affect physical performance, such as asthma and diabetes.

“Dr Carneiro will also advise on managing and preventing injuries, sports and exercise nutrition, supplementation and performance enhancement.”

Carneiro, 42, was joined by her husband Jason De Carteret in Croydon as she attended a London South Employment Tribunal before a judge.
