Eva Carneiro hints at possible Chelsea return years after Jose Mourinho row led to controversial exit

Former Chelsea first-team doctor Eva Carneiro has hinted at a possible return to Stamford Bridge after fans pleaded for her to come back.

The Blues are currently going through a slight injury crisis after defender Reece James appeared to injure the same knee that kept him out of the 2022 World Cup.

James is likely to join the likes of Ben Chilwell, N’Golo Kante, Ruben Loftus Cheek, Armando Broja, Wesley Fofana and Carney Chukwuemeka in the treatment room.

As a result of their ever-growing injury list, Chelsea fans have taken to social media to ask Carneiro to return to the club.

One fan posted a picture of the doctor with a caption that read: “One last dance?”

Carneiro replied with: “Venga!”, which can be translated as “Come on” or “Let’s go”.

After seeing her reply, fans piled on to persuade the Gibraltarian.

Another fan added: “Please come back to Chelsea we really need you. The doctors present here are not helping matters at all.

“During your stay, we had no or little resurgences of injuries. Please you are needed at Chelsea again.”

A third fan said: “Please come back home the boys really need you at this time.”

Someone else wrote: “We the Chelsea fans will do everything absolutely possible to reunite with again... we need you back at Stamford Bridge - come back home ma'am.”

Carneiro worked for the likes of West Ham, the Olympics and the Lionesses before joining Chelsea back in 2009.

Two years after, she was promoted to work alongside the first team by then-manager Andre Villas-Boas. She continued her role under the likes of Roberto Di Matteo, Rafael Benitez and Jose Mourinho.

However, things started to turn sour in 2015 after Mourinho publicly criticised her and physio Jon Fearn for running onto the pitch to treat Eden Hazard.

A month after the incident, Mourinho was cleared of any wrongdoing but Carneiro left Chelsea and took the club to court before settling for £5 million over her dismissal.

Since leaving Chelsea, Carneiro is a specialist at The Sports Medical Group in London whilst she was also a consultant for a hospital in Qatar prior to the World Cup.
