FIFA medical committee plan to debate Chelsea’s Eva Carneiro storm after Jose Mourinho exiled the first team doctor

Following the drama between Eva Carneiro infuriating Mourinho when she rushed onto the pitch to treat Eden Hazard in the club’s opening match against Swansea, leaving Chelsea with 9 men to defend since the Blues were already a man down.

The first team doctor has since then been stripped off the first team duties and has been seen taking a vacation instead.

The Carneiro situation has raised a few eyebrows. The FIFA medical committee chairman Michel D’Hooghe has taken notice of the incidence and has held a summit to debate where the team doctor’s code of conduct has been breached or not.

Belgian D’Hooghe, a respected FIFA executive committee member, said: ‘I have put it on the agenda of the medical committee that takes place on September 11 in Zurich. You would expect me to support the team doctor.

‘The most important thing is if he arrives in a situation where he thinks he has to judge between his medical duty and other issues then he must not hesitate.

‘This is once again an example of the difficult situation of the team doctor and I want to discuss this with my colleagues and to see if we need to give a declaration from the medical side to help team doctors.

‘Such problems arise everywhere in the world but of course it has come up with Mourinho and Chelsea.’
