Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has a complete lack of respect for Eva Carneiro and her profession.

After calling his medical team ‘naive' at the weekend in the aftermath of Chelsea’s 2-2- draw with Swansea, Jose has gone one step further and banned team doctor Carneiro from attending matches, training and the team hotel for this weekend’s game against Manchester City.

Mourinho’s decision to undermine his team doctor like this is completely unacceptable and makes him look like a fool in the process. No-one would agree with a football manager over-ruling a trained medical practitioner on any health matter.

Eden Hazard had gone down after getting a fairly heavy knee to the top of the leg or lower stomach from Ashley Williams.

Hazard is well used to being the target of rough treatment from opposing players, but anyone could see that there was significant contact there, enough to warrant a yellow card and the Chelsea team doctors running onto the pitch.

If any of the medics at a football game feel the need to enter the field of play then we must all assume it’s for a legitimate reason and the benefit of the player concerned.

To put his own needs first and complain that he was a man down if counter attacked by Swansea shows a complete lack of respect to the job of doctor and the potential safety of his star player.

We all know that Jose Mourinho will use distraction tactics to deflect from bad team or player performances. But to punish Eva Carneiro, purely for doing her job, by banning her from team gatherings is unprofessional, childish, extremely narcissistic and again shows the lack of class Mourinho has.

With a very poor pre-season behind them, points dropped already in the league and Manchester City coming next, it is going to be an interesting and difficult weekend for Chelsea.

But one thing can be almost guaranteed, there will be plenty more questions about Eva Carneiro, than any of the football played and if the result doesn’t go Mourinho’s way, more excuses to deflect from the football funk they may find themselves in.
