Chelsea's team doctor Eva Carneiro has been in the news all week after her fallout with coach, Jose Mourinho.

Carneiro and Mourinho had the now famous row during Chelsea Saturday, August 8  2-2 home draw with Swansea.

Mourinho fumed at the medical team for going on to the pitch to attend to Eden Hazard without knowing the extent of his injury.

She was thereafter barred from her role on the bench and  was not on duty during Chelsea's 3-0 defeat at the Etihad to Manchester City

It is now been alleged that the doctor is having an affair with defender Branislav Ivanović.

Eva’s former boyfriend Rupert Patterson-Ward in an interview claimed that the doctor had in the past during heated argument told him that she was having sex with a Chelsea player.

"Eva would blurt out she had slept with one of the players during heated rows. I don’t believe it was true," Ward said.

"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.

Ivanović is married to Nataša, with whom he has a son named Stefan and a twin called Andreja and Ana.

These two incidents suggest that this allegation might be true.
