Former Chelsea Team Doctor Eva Carnerio Recieved Death Threats

Published

on

Former Chelsea Team doctor Eva Carneiro revealed she received death threats after her exit from Stamford Bridge and also insist that enough hasn’t been done to curb sexism in the game.

Eva left Chelsea after harsh criticism from Ex-Blue’s manager Jose Mourinho in 2015, after she was publicly criticised for treating Eden Hazard on the pitch in a game against Swansea.

The 43-year old doctor also believes enough hasn’t been done to curb the growing menace of sexism in football.

Speaking to The Telegraph

“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,”
“They [the abusers] just seem to be faceless cowards and they should be answerable to legislation.”

“It is one thing to say, ‘We will end discrimination’ and I think it is widely accepted that discrimination exists in the sport,” she said.

“I think sexism is the least challenged form of discrimination. Anti-Semitic and other racist comments are widely condemned and I don’t think that is the case [with sexism] and it begs the question what that leaves room for behind the scenes.

“It is widely accepted that football has a discrimination problem. I really do feel that way, but I think it is the least challenged form of discrimination.

“Growing up I didn’t think it [gender inequality] was going to be a problem. It never even occurred to me there would be differences in what we could achieve, or what we were told we could achieve, by being girls or boys.

“At university more than 50 percent of the intake in medical school is female, so a female doctor wanting to do anything from trauma surgery to working in the military is not surprising. Seeking specialist training in certain sports, male colleagues found that quite surprising.

“There was very much a dialogue of bringing attention to my gender or objectifying me in some way. They described that as a limit to my career progression in that direction, which I was stunned by. It was a dialogue more appropriate for the 1950s.”
