Club doctor Eva Carneiro could probably compete with Eden Hazard for the title of the world’s favourite member of Chelsea staff right now.
The British public and even Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich appear to have taken Carneiro’s side following her fall-out with manager Jose Mourinho.
Although Carneiro is incredibly popular, Mourinho has the final say and it is ultimately his opinion that matters.
Mourinho freaked out at Carneiro and first-team physiotherapist Jon Fearn last weekend for entering the field of play at an inconvenient moment – from the Special One’s questionable point of view – during Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea.
As a consequence, neither Carneiro and Fearn will be on the bench when Chelsea visit Manchester City on Sunday.
That unfortunately means that fans will be deprived of the chance to watch Carneiro at work this weekend.
But fear not! We have searched through the archives to bring you five brilliant snaps of football’s favourite doctor where she belongs – in around the first-team action.
