Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho ESCAPES Premier League punishment for Eva Carneiro ‘slut’ outburst

Jose Mourinho, the Chelsea manager, has evaded punishment for his criticism of first-team doctor Eva Carneiro and first-team physiotherapist Jon Fearn after their 2-2 draw with Swansea City on the opening day of the Premier League season.

Carneiro and Fearn rushed onto the pitch following the referee’s second call for the pair to assess the condition of Eden Hazard, and Mourinho was furious, suggesting that they were key in preventing the Blues from scoring a winning goal in the final seconds of the game.

The Portuguese boss described his medics as ‘naive’ and lacking in an understanding of football in his post-match comments.

And it was later claimed that Mourinho had called Carneiro a ‘slut’ during their row on the side of the pitch.

However, despite Rule 7 of the Premier League’s Code of Conduct for managers stating that: “A manager shall not make public any unfair criticism of any match official or any other manager or any player, official or employee of his or another club”, Mourinho will not face punishment.

While his comments can comfortably be considered unfair criticism, according to the Express, the Premier League board insist that the matter belongs only to Chelsea Football Club, and must therefore be dealt with internally.

Carneiro’s future at Stamford Bridge is uncertain, but Fearn is expected to keep his job, the British newspaper state.
