Greg Dyke slams Jose Mourinho for his actions involving Eva Carneiro

Published Add your comment

FA chairman Greg Dyke has criticised Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho's handling of the fallout with Eva Carneiro that saw the doctor leave the club.

Carneiro and physio Jon Fearn were involved in a touchline altercation with Mourinho following their decision to treat Eden Hazard, and the 42-year-old has left the club after her position became untenable. 

The Portuguese boss was cleared of any wrongdoing by the Football Association, but in a letter released by the chairman he says Mourinho did not come out of the situation well.

The letter, that was picked up by the Press Association, read - as per the Mirror: "Personally I don't think Mr Mourinho comes well out of the whole saga - he clearly made a mistake in the heat of a game, and should have said so and apologised.

"Instead he has said very little and Miss Carneiro has lost her job.

"Our regulatory team have investigated this and whilst Mr Mourinho has breached no rules it was clearly a failure of his personal judgement and public behaviour. This should be seen as such by the game."


The situation, that arose during Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Swansea City, cast a dark cloud over the west London club and Mourinho has come in for considerable criticism from many sides. 

The Blues' poor start to their title defence has only increased the problems mounting up for the 52-year-old. 

Fearn has remained at Stamford Bridge despite Carneiro's exit and her departure has brought into question the role of equality in the modern game. 

Chelsea will be hoping all the off-field issues are behind them and they can focus on matters on the pitch, but it seems this ongoing scenario is far from over.
