The English Football Association (FA) has revealed it will investigate Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho over claims of sexism.
This was made known in a statement by the FA stating it had “received an enquiry relating to an alleged incident during the Premier League fixture between Swansea v Chelsea on 8 August” but didn’t comment further on the issue.
It will be recalled that following the Chelsea-Swansea 2-2 draw where Mourinho lashed out at team doctor, Eva Carneiro, she was demote and she has yet to return to the club’s training ground. Carneiro ran on the pitch to treat Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard at the request of referee Michael Oliver during the match, an action which the Portuguese-born didn’t take kindly to.
If found guilty by the FA, Mourinho could face a five-match ban as the FA rules stipulate that players and coaches could be punished for using “offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures”.
