Jose Mourinho sacked: The woman who stood up to Special One and brought him down

Many believe Mourinho's cruel treatment of former Chelsea medic Eva Carnerio sparked the end of his managerial reign

Beaming on her big day, Eva ­Carneiro’s broad smile hides a ­determination that may well be behind Jose ­Mourinho’s spectacular downfall.
As the Special One was sensationally sacked by Chelsea for a second time, many believe his axing of the medic from the Chelsea bench sparked the slump in form that transformed the team from Premier League champions to relegation material in a matter of months.
While there are few brave enough to take on the mighty ego that is ­Mourinho, Carneiro has done just that by suing over her treatment.
He infuriated the 42-year-old with his very public dressing down of her after she raced on to the pitch to treat injured star Eden Hazard as the clock ticked down during the opening day draw against Swansea.

The popular doctor was dumped from matchday duties and it is believed the move split the camp and turned key players against the manager.
The ­acrimonious saga has been referred to as “The Curse Of Eva” as the team tumbled towards the bottom of the league after humiliating losses to the likes of newly-promoted Bournemouth.
And earlier today Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich’s patience finally ran out with the Portuguese coach and he was fired – in a move that could cost the Russian billionaire £45million. The last straw was Monday night’s 2-1 defeat to league-leading Leicester City, after which bitter Mourinho accused his players of “betraying” him.

Carneiro – who last month married polar explorer Jason De Carteret – is suing for ­constructive dismissal after ­quitting the club.
Mourinho’s sacking could pave the way for her return as her dismissal claim ­reportedly includes a request for ­reinstatement should he depart.
Mourinho arrived at the club’s training ground in Cobham, Surrey, at 9am none the wiser about his fate. But he was later visibly upset when talking to players.
Final whistle: Mourinho covers his face under a hoody
He covered his face with his hood as he was driven home in the afternoon. It is ­understood ­Mourinho, who signed a new four-year deal just five months ago, will be paid his £250,000 a week salary by Chelsea until he lands another job.
If he decides against working for other clubs, it mean Abramovich could end up forking out £45.5million for him to do nothing.

The 49-year-old Russian and Mourinho, 52, have a long and close relationship, which makes the coach’s exit more dramatic.
He was fired after his first title-winning spell in charge at Chelsea in 2007 and many believed he would never again work with the oligarch. But the pair put their ­differences behind them and he was rehired in 2013, leading Chelsea to their third Premier League crown under his guidance.

In September, Mourinho insisted this time round their relationship was more solid – despite the team’s ­precarious league ­position. He said: “Let’s be objective. I don’t want to leave the club. And the club doesn’t want me to leave. I’m not going to walk away. The club is not going to sack me.”
His predictions were as way off as the on-field tactics that have brought so little joy at Stamford Bridge and yesterday Chelsea said the manager had left by “mutual consent”. The club added: “All at Chelsea thank Jose for his immense contribution since he returned as manager in 2013.”

Last day: Mourinho feels the strain
News of his sacking was met with a mixed response from football pundits.
Match of the Day’s Alan Shearer said: “Nothing surprises me with football managers nowadays.
“It will without doubt hurt him. Whatever he has done it just has not worked. No one could have predicted this.”
Sam Allardyce, whose Sunderland side will play Chelsea on Saturday, added: “I’m shocked to say the least. I’m sad to see Mourinho go because I got to know him quite well and he’s a great character. He’s a loss to the Premier League.”

Mourinho had already planned a short trip to Portugal for Christmas to see his sick dad Jose Mourinho Felix, 77, who is recovering after suffering a brain haemorrhage.
