Eva Carneiro is not expected to return to her position at Chelsea, and the Football Medical Association (FMA) have revealed that the case is now with their lawyers, as reported by Sky Sports.
The situation has developed following on from the initial spat between Dr. Carniero and Jose Mourinho which took place during the game against Swansea at Stamford Bridge last month.
Carneiro ran on to the pitch to tend to Eden Hazard after he suffered an injury in the closing stages of the game, but Mourinho was infuriated as it risked leaving his side with nine men on the field after Thibaut Courtois had been sent off earlier on.
According to Sky Sports, Dr. Carneiro has now left the club and will not be resuming her work with the Premier League champions after the incident.
An official statement from the FMA, as published by Sky Sports, read: “Having recently been contacted by Eva, we have offered our full support in attempting to negotiate a satisfactory outcome. Unfortunately this has not resulted in our preferred outcome.
“Chelsea considers this now to be an internal matter and it is for Chelsea and Eva’s appointed Lawyers to discuss any further action.”
Carneiro and physiotherapist Jon Fearn have been removed from the bench during games since the incident, and with relations between the respective parties evidently deteriorating, it has ultimately led to legal proceedings getting underway.
