Roman Abramovich has been left outraged with the ongoing situation at Chelsea involving the club's team doctor Eva Carneiro, a source has told the Mail on Sunday.

Jose Mourinho kicked up a worldwide storm after openly criticising the first-team physio, accusing her of being naive before dropping her from match day duties.

It has taken the focus away from today's crucial game against Manchester City and left the experienced medic exposed to the full force of the British press.

Now a source close to the Abramovich family has claimed that the Chelsea owner is less than impressed with the way Mourinho has handled the situation and has told chairman Bruce Buck to sort it out as a matter of urgency.

The source also claims that Abramovich's wife, Dasha Zhukova, is furious with the Special One. However, the Russian oligarch has no intention of criticising the manager, who has just agreed a four-year deal with the Blues.

Outraged and furious

The source said: "Abramovich is outraged by what’s happened and his young wife is even more angry.

"But there’s no way we dare do anything that might be seen as criticising Jose because he would go and we’ve just given him a new four-year contract.

"The owner hasn’t been around but wherever he is – probably on his yacht in the Med – he will have watched the game and he will know about what’s happened since.

"I’m sure he will have told the chairman Bruce Buck to sort it before the club’s name gets even more tarnished."

"A lot of people think Jose hates that. Some even suspect he is jealous of her"

Player support

Interestingly, the source also claims that even Chelsea's first-team stars have been showing support for Carneiro with one recognisable star even sending the 41-year-old flowers.

The source said: "Eva’s paying the price for being so popular. The players love her because she’s so committed and so good at her job, and the fans love her and even chant her name.

"A lot of people think Jose hates that. Some even suspect he is jealous of her."
