The Football Association (FA) have confirmed that Jose Mourinho will face no disciplinary action in relation to allegedly discriminatory comments made during his disagreement with former Chelsea club doctor Eva Carneiro. The incident in question occurred during the defending champions' first Premier League fixture of the 2015/16 Premier League season against Swansea at Stamford Bridge, when Carneiro and physiotherapist Jon Fearn angered the manager by rushing onto the pitch in order to treat Eden Hazard with his side already down to 10 men following the dismissal of Thibaut Courtois.
"Following information brought to the attention of the FA regarding Chelsea manager José Mourinho and alleged discriminatory comments made in the Premier League fixture between Swansea and Chelsea on 8 August, the FA has now concluded an investigation into the matter," a statement from the governing body read as relayed by The Guardian.
"The matter was brought to the attention of the FA on 8 September and led to the appointment of an independent academic expert in Portuguese linguistics to analyse the footage of the incident which included the audio recording.
"After receiving the report from the expert, the FA is satisfied that the words used do not constitute discriminatory language under FA Rules. Furthermore, both the words used, as translated and analysed by the independent expert, and the video evidence, do not support the conclusion that the words were directed at any person in particular. Consequently, on the evidence available to it, the FA will take no further action in relation to this matter."
