August 8 – With Chelsea struggling late on in their Barclays Premier League opener at home to Swansea, Hazard went to ground and the referee called for treatment, at which point Carneiro and physio Jon Fearn went on to the pitch to treat him. After the 2-2 draw, Mourinho branded his medical staff “impulsive and naive” as treating Hazard meant Chelsea would be temporarily down to nine men – Thibaut Courtois had already been sent off. “Whether you are a kit man, doctor or secretary on the bench you have to understand the game,” Mourinho said. last_img read more
