London - Eva Carneiro, the Chelsea team doctor publicly criticised by manager Jose Mourinho, has left the club, according to British media reports.

Carneiro was removed from match-day duties last month after her and physiotherapist Jon Fearn were rebuked by Mourinho for running on to treat Eden Hazard during Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Swansea City on the season's opening weekend, which temporarily left his team with nine players.

Several media outlets, including the BBC, said that Carneiro, 42, had left Chelsea and was expected to launch a claim for constructive dismissal.

Chelsea have not commented on the reports.

It follows reports last week that Mourinho could face a five-match ban after a member of the public complained that the Portuguese had used sexist and abusive language against Carneiro.

Following the Swansea game, Mourinho said: "I was unhappy with my medical staff. They were impulsive and naive.

"Whether you are a kit man, doctor or secretary on the bench you have to understand the game."

Carneiro, born in Gibraltar to a Spanish father and English mother, thanked people on Facebook for their support in the aftermath of the incident, but has not spoken publicly since.
