Chelsea boss escapes FA punishment over Carneiro rant

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho will not receive any punishment from the Football Association following his rant involving former club doctor Eva Carneiro, according to reports from the BBC.

Mourinho and Carneiro were in a public bust-up in which the Portugese boss accused the doctor and her assistant Jon Fearn for disrupting the game to treat Eden Hazard with the score tied at 2-2 vs Swansea City.

And the conflict saw Mourinho sideline the doctor to a bit-part role, before she eventually decided to quit her post.

Carneiro is now set to sue the club with a lawsuit, however after analyzing the footage the FA have decided to not punish Mourinho for discrimination as his comments were not ‘directed at anyone in particular’.

“Both the words used, as translated and analysed by the independent expert, and the video evidence, do not support the conclusion that the words were directed at any person in particular,” a statement read.

Ever since the incident the Blues have had a rather poor start to the season, currently 8 points behind league leaders Manchester United and losing their second Champions League game to FC Porto during the week.
