FIFA’s chairman of the medical committee has revealed that Eva Carneiro’s spat with Jose Mourinho and Chelsea could lead to new rules.
Carneiro was heavily criticised by Mourinho after she entered the pitch to treat Eden Hazard during the 2-2 draw with Swansea in August.
The Belgian ace was forced to leave the pitch to leave Chelsea with nine men on the field in the late stages of the game and that ultimately infuriated Mourinho who lambasted his doctor at the time.
Carneiro has yet to return to work and resume her position, and that in turn has led to questions being asked of Chelsea’s role in the controversy.
However, Michel D’Hooghe has now revealed that it could lead to changes and new rules being made for the code of ethics which managers and team doctors will have to abide to.
“I do not think we have the right to interfere directly in a problem of a club with one of its medical collaborators.” However, they are considering a code of ethics.”
FIFA’s Medical Committee are meeting in Zurich and are expected to release a statement on the situation on Friday.
