Chelsea’s reads with glowing praise of Carneiro, while the doctor’s comments don’t mention Chelsea or Mourinho by name at all:

“I am relieved that today we have been able to conclude this tribunal case. It has been an extremely difficult and distressing time for me and my family and I now look forward to moving forward with my life.

“My priority has always been the health and safety of the players and fulfilling my duty of care as a doctor. In running onto the pitch to treat a player, who requested medical attention, I was following the rules of the game and fulfilling my medical responsibilities.

“I would like to thank everyone who has supported me including my husband, family and friends and members of the football community.”
