What probably started out as a distraction tactic to divert attention away from the poor performance of his players has quickly snowballed into some seriously bad press for Jose Mourinho and Chelsea, and new developments suggest that it's not finished yet.
BBC Sport are reporting that Eva Carneiro has left the club, six weeks after she was heavily criticised for doing nothing other than her job as she treated "injured" Chelsea player Eden Hazard in the closing stages of the club's opening Premier League match with Swansea City. Mourinho had a row with Carneiro on the touchline, and later claimed that her actions left the team vulnerable, ignoring the fact that she was ushered on by the referee and that Hazard had gone down despite not needing treatment.
Furthermore, Mail Online are claiming that Chelsea understand that Carneiro is seeking the advice of top employment lawyers to prepare a case of constructive dismissal against the club.
And it doesn't end there, the FA are also believed to be looking into a complaint that Jose Mourinho used abusive and or sexist language towards Carnerio, so this really doesn't look good for The Special One.
We expect to hear more on this in the coming weeks, and it will be interesting to see if Eva Carneiro finds another football club or explores employment in a different environment.
