Former Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro has revealed how she was recently sent death threats while on her honeymoon, as well as threats of violence and sexual abuse in the aftermath of her court case, but has stood strong and called her abusers ‘faceless cowards’.
Carneiro was branded “naive” by ex-Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho in August 2015 for running on to the pitch to treat Eden Hazard in stoppage-time in a Premier League match against Swansea, which led to a public row on the touchlines and was caught by cameras during the game.
The row eventually led Eva to leave the club and go to a tribunal claiming sex discrimination and constructive dismissal, leading to Mourinho being fined for his actions and Carneiro receiving a compensatory fee on leaving her position at the club.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Carneiro has spoken of the abuse that she has received in the aftermath of the incident, suggesting that even without social media, it has been hard to steer clear of the attacks.

“Even though I don’t have a presence on social media – I think I have made one post ever in my life – some of the threats of sexual violence and death threats make it through,” said Carneiro.
“They [the abusers] just seem to be faceless cowards and they should be answerable to legislation.”
