Heather Rabbatts: Football owes women like Eva Carneiro a duty of care

FA Board member Dame Heather Rabbatts has told 5 live that football "owes a duty of care" to women like former Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro. She told Afternoon Edition's Dan Walker that Dr Carneiro was one of "very few high profile women working at the top end of football."

Dame Heather has publicly supported Dr Carneiro, who has now begun an employment tribunal for constructive dismissal against Chelsea.

Dame Heather told 5 live that the case represented a "significant moment for football" and added "for us at the FA it means that we need to absolutely look at our processes again to ensure that women who are in the game get support".
