In a rare demonstration of anger towards the Special One, Chelsea fans are taking to social media on Tuesday to protest news broken by the Telegraph that Eva Carneiro has been kicked off the Blues bench.
Carneiro appears to be paying the price from her decision to get Eden Hazard off the pitch against Swansea in the final moments of the match.
Jose Mourinho slammed the Chelsea club doctor after the match in his post game interview, and now the Telegraph have reported that Eva Carneiro will no longer “attend training sessions, games or enter the hotel.”
Carneiro, 41, is a huge favourite with the Chelsea fans, having joined the Pensioners in 2009.
As news spreads that Carneiro will no longer be a fixture on the Chelsea bench, Blues fans are getting upset online.
Below are tweets from Chelsea fans slamming Jose Mourinho for reportedly axing Eva Carneiro from front line duties.
Chelsea’s next match in the Premier League is away at title rivals Manchester City on Sunday.
Not on Mourinho's side in this Eva Carnerio case. Love the man but utterly stupid of him if the new rumours are true.

I think everyone agrees, or the sane ones, that Mourinho should've kept his mouth shut rather than having a go at Eva. Let her do her job.

So Eden asked the medical staff to come on the pitch.. Shame all of this has blown out of proportion. #CFC

Bit harsh from Mourinho and #Chelsea if true… guess the only positive is that Carneiro will no longer have to deal with sexist chants.

Is Mourinho out of his mind? Was it just because of the Swansea game or were there previous issues? Disgraceful

Mourinho is in the wrong, but I wouldn’t make this incident into a gender issue. There’s nothing to remotely suggest that he’s sexist.

Doctor blamed and sacked for running onto pitch to treat injured player (who Mourinho says was he knew not injured). And the player?
