Under-fire Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro is alleged to have had sex with a Chelsea player, according to her former boyfriend.

Ms Carneiro hit the headlines last week after being demoted by Jose Mourinho following a furious touchline row about whether she should have treated one of the players.

Now, however, the Sun reports that Rupert Patterson-Ward, allegedly a former boyfriend of Eva Carneiro, claims the doctor taunted him by saying she once slept with an unnamed Chelsea player.

He said: 'Eva would blurt out she had slept with one of the players during heated rows. I don't believe it was true.

'She told me how one footballer would constantly hit on her, parading around naked in the dressing room and making sure she got a real eyeful.

'After one match, he called her to his hotel room and answered the door completely starkers. She rubbed my nose in it when we rowed. It was cruel.' 

Mr Patterson-Ward claimed he met Gibraltar-born Ms Carneiro in 2011 at Frankie's sports bar in the club's Stamford Bridge complex, a day which he compared to a 'Carlsberg TV ad.'

Jose mourinho has confirmed that Eva Carneiro and Jon Fearn will not be on the Chelsea bench for Sunday’s game against Manchester City, but insists he has not shut the door on their possible return later in the season.
