The head of Fifa’s healthcare committee says he will help Eva Carneiro in her legal case against Chelsea.
Former Blues doctor Carneiro is suing the club for constructive dismissal, whilst Blues boss Jose Mourinho is the topic of an person legal action.
Carneiro was dropped from initial-group duties after Mourinho mentioned she was “naive” for treating Eden Hazard throughout a draw with Swansea.
“Of course I help Eva Carneiro,” stated Fifa chief Michel D’Hooghe.
“She did her job, she did her duty – when somebody is medically in problems she has to intervene. Of course she has my help and the entire health-related committee’s.
“I have had e mail make contact with with her and she is very pleased with the worldwide help of the medical planet in football.”
The incident which led to the existing predicament occurred on eight August, the opening day of the Premier League season, when Carneiro and head physio Jon Fearn were known as on to the pitch by referee Michael Oliver during Chelsea’s 2-two draw with Swansea to treat midfielder Eden Hazard.
Chelsea have been currently down to ten men right after goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was sent off, and with Hazard having to leave the field right after being treated in spite of appearing not to be badly injured, the team had been temporarily decreased to nine guys.
Mourinho was broadly criticised for his comments but was cleared of utilizing discriminatory language by the Football Association.
D’Hooghe conceded that Carneiro may discover it difficult to get a new job in football but he would aid her if required.
“I can picture that in the brief term she may well have some issues with that,” he added.
“But with her personality and her competence she need to certainly have a excellent future and if I can support her I will do it.”
