Dr Eva Carneiro has left Chelsea, according to reports.

Dr Carneiro has not appeared on the first-team bench since the opening day draw against Swansea, where she was involved in a row with manager Jose Mourinho after rushing onto the pitch to treat Eden Hazard late in the game.

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea and Carneiro have now 'parted company'.

The Football Association are investigating a complaint that Mourinho used abusive, sexist language towards Dr Carneiro, The Independent revealed last week.

The Mail state that Chelsea ordered Carneiro to return to work last Friday for the first time since the Swansea draw on 8 August; but she failed to show and has not been seen since.
