Ex Chelsea Physio, Eva Carneiro Marries In London, See Notable Absentees

Former Chelsea FC’s first team doctor, Eva Carneiro has tied the knot with partner Jason De Carteret, a polar explorer, at St Patrick’s Church in Soho, London, today, Wednesday, November 12.

A few former footballers attended the service which includes ex-Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer.

However, none of the current crop of Chelsea FC players or coaching staff were present at the service to further ignite the feud existing between the doctor and the club.


Gibraltar-born Carneiro, who is suing Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho for constructive dismissal, is currently without a job after leaving her post at Stamford Bridge.

Carneiro’s lawyers have failed to agree a settlement with Chelsea so far. The three-month period in which a claim must be notified ended on November 8.

An employment tribunal hearing is set to take place early next year and could be potentially embarrassing for the club, and for that reason such cases are usually settled beforehand.

The doctor was dropped from first-team duties on August 8 after she and physio John Fearn were criticised by manager Jose Mourinho for going on to the pitch to treat Eden Hazard – the player had to leave the field temporarily as a result meaning Chelsea were briefly down to nine men.
