For being a better athlete, good health is the most important aspect, and to maintain good health condition of the athlete during their performance and other times a doctor is required for the reason. Likewise, Eva Carneiro who was born in Gibraltar served as a sports medicine specialist for Chelsea. For Chelsea, from 2009 to 2015, she served as a health specialist.
on 30 September 1973, the British sports medicine specialist was born and now she is of age 46. In the New South Institute of Sport in Sydney. Later, she did MBBS from the University of Nottingham. After the completion of the Masters, she worked in the ‘The Sports Medical Group’.Dr. Eva is mostly on Twitter with the username Eva Carneiro and has got 18.7K followers and there she mostly posts about health and fitness there. She got married to a tall and handsome British man Jason De Carteret who is a polar explorer. Dr. Eva is the daughter of Antonio and Lourdes Carneiro.
Carneiro was born in Gibraltar to a Spanish father Antonio Carneiro, an electrician, and his English wife Lourdes. At the age of 16, she was inspired to be a doctor in sport. She studied medicine at the University of Nottingham, spent two years at the Australasian College of Sports Physicians in Melbourne, and completed her MSc in Sport and Exercise at Queen Mary University of London
Carneiro worked for West Ham United upon completing her thesis, after which she was employed by the Public Health department at Islington Primary Care Trust before being appointed to the UK Sports and Medicine Specialist training program with the Olympic Medical Institute preparing British athletes for the 2008 Olympic Games. She also worked with the England women’s football team.
Carneiro joined Chelsea in 2009 and in 2011 she was appointed by manager André Villas-Boas to work with the first team having previously worked with their reserve team squad. After his dismissal, she continued to work for Chelsea under the managerships of Roberto Di Matteo, Rafael Benítez, and José Mourinho.
In the 2014–15 season, Carneiro was reported to have been subjected to sexist chants by Arsenal, Manchester City, and Manchester United supporters. The Football Association’s Heather Rabbatts, from their Inclusion and Advisory Board, called on supporters to report sexism within the game with the FA vowing to act against sexist chanting. Chelsea called for an end to sexist chanting by fans. Prompted by the abuse aimed at Carneiro, UK Sports Minister, Helen Grant, demanded that sport do more to eradicate “the scourge of bigotry and discrimination”. Journalist Alex Clark of The Guardian quoted the abuse aimed at Carneiro as a reason to eradicate sexism from both within football and society in general. She was part of the backup team supporting the Chelsea side that won the Premier League and League Cup in 2015.
Carneiro and chief physiotherapist Jon Fearn were the subject of criticism from Mourinho after the first game of the 2015–16 season: Chelsea were playing Swansea City at Stamford Bridge. According to Mourinho, she and Fearn rushed onto the pitch to attend to Eden Hazard when he felt the injury was not of a serious nature. He was further annoyed because this meant that Chelsea, having already had a player sent-off during the match, were temporarily left with nine outfield players. Under the Laws of the Game, medical staff are not allowed onto the field without the referee’s permission but have a duty to tend to an injured player when summoned. Carneiro and Fearn were twice summoned onto the field by referee Michael Oliver. Carneiro’s view that she was simply doing her job has been fully supported by FIFA and its medical chairman Michel D’Hooghe. Both Fearn and Carneiro were absent for Chelsea’s following game, away to Manchester City on 16 August.
Back in 2007, Mourinho admitted that he called match referee Mike Riley filho da puta, which is an abusive Portuguese expression that translates as “son of a bitch/whore”. After the Carneiro incident, it was alleged that Mourinho had called her filha da puta, which translates as “daughter of a bitch/whore”. Mourinho denied using the feminine form of the phrase, saying “Filho da puta is a phrase I often use, all of the players know it. There is no sexist connotation in the use of the phrase – it is just like saying….” On 22 September 2015, Carneiro left her position as the first-team doctor with Chelsea. On 30 September, after consulting a Portuguese language expert, the FA cleared Mourinho of making discriminatory comments towards Carneiro. Neither Mourinho nor Carneiro was called to give evidence to the FA. The report stated that the audio recording had been examined but did not contain the words which the expert concluded Mourinho had said.
Campaign group Women in Football after consulting their own language expert said they were “appalled” at the decision to clear Mourinho and that its language expert was certain Mourinho had used abusive language towards a woman, contrary to the verdict of the FA’s expert. The decision to clear Mourinho also drew criticism from Football Association chairman, Greg Dyke, and Heather Rabbatts, the head of the FA’s inclusion advisory board.
