Manchester United are in something of a crisis today after last night’s crushing 3-0 defeat to Spurs at Old Trafford, and Jose Mourinho‘s job looks far from secure – and plenty of fans reckon this is a spot of karmic justice for his treatment of Eva Carneiro.
Carneiro was the club doctor under Mourinho at Chelsea, and the pair had a high-profile falling out several years ago after Mourinho was left furious at Carneiro rushing onto the field to treat Eden Hazard during a 2-2 draw with Swansea City.
The incident led to a bitter dispute between the medic and the London club, which ended up with Carneiro leaving the club and the matter being settled in the court rooms.
However, there’s quite a lot of onlookers who reckon Jose is suffering now in part because of the way he treated Carneiro back in 2015:
Things ain't been the same for Mourinho since he yelled at Eva Carneiro

Eva Carneiro was the downfall of Jose Mourinho.
He has become a cursed chalice.
The moment Manyoo took him in, they became cursed.

Jose Mourinho deserves the same respect as he gave to Eva Carneiro, who was only doing her job. Karma is a bitch isn't it?

Eva Carneiro deserved respect. Before Jose poked him in the eye from behind like a coward. Jose, despite your childlike, tantrum-esque assertions, you most certainly do not deserve respect anymore. You are reaping what you have so vigourously sown for years. #MUFC

Do you believe in Karma? Is Jose paying for his misdemeanours from the past?
