Chelsea: Eva Carneiro ‘sues’ the Blues but the secretary tag need not be sexist

by | 9th, September 2015

Chelsea club doctor Eva Carneiro is to sue the club, says the Sun . On what charge? What’s the crime?

Neil Curtis explains:

It is understood Carneiro could claim sexism in part of her case, alleging that Mourinho referred to her as ‘a secretary’.

Mourinho belittled her in public. It was pathetic. But surely a man can be a secretary? Alan Shaw is company secretary at Chelsea Football Club. John Alexander is Man United’s club secretary.

This is Arsenal club secretary David Miles:

Mohamed Al Mazrouei, Non-Executive Director of Manchester City, is Under Secretary to the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince’s Court. The board at Tottenham includes Kevan Watts, who spent seven years at H M Treasury which included two years as Private Secretary to the Permanent Secretary.

So much for secretaries.
