Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has stood by his criticism of club medical staff.
Dr Eva Carneiro and physio Jon Fearn were criticised by Mourinho after they left his side with nine men against Swansea by treating Eden Hazard.
They will not be on the bench for Sunday’s match at Manchester City, but he has not ruled out their return.
Mourinho met with his medical staff on Thursday and says they have a “good relationship.”
“Jon Fearn and Dr Carneiro will not be on the bench,” said Mourinho. “But that doesn’t mean they cannot be in the future. It is my decision. ”
Asked if he regretted his outburst, Mourinho said he had an “open relationship” with his medical staff that was “open to disagreement.”
