Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho found himself the centre of controversy again after he criticised first-team doctor Eva Carneiro for treating midfielder Eden Hazard during the game.
This occurred during the Blues’ 2-2 draw with Swansea City on Saturday, and Hazard leaving the field meant that they briefly only had nine players because of Thibaut Courtois’ earlier sending off.
This caused the outspoken Chelsea boss to call his medical team “naive,” and Carneiro has been banned from sitting on the bench during future matches, according to Sky Sports.
Although she is expected to keep her job as first-team doctor, Arsenal fans, who have had to see their team suffer an array of injuries in recent seasons, are holding out hope that this may not be the case.
Gooners blew up Twitter with their reactions to Carneiro being banned from the bench, and are urging their club to pull the trigger and bring her across London. Here are a few of the best tweets:
@Arsenal should go all out & buy Eva Carneiro. Forget Karim Benzema.
