Former Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro has today attended a tribunal hearing for her constructive dismissal case against Chelsea.

The Blues filed their defence for the case of constructive dismissal and a breach of contract in December.

Carneiro, 42, attended the private hearing at London South Employment Tribunal in Croydon, during which the parties could agree to come to a settlement.

There is also a separate claim against José Mourinho, for alleged discrimination. This all came on the first day of the season when the former Chelsea boss heavily criticised Carneiro and first team physio Jon Fearn for going on the pitch to treat Eden Hazard when the Blues were down to 10 men already.

The Portuguese manager then went on to call them both “impulsive and naive”. In which Carneiro and Fearn were dropped from match duties and Carneiro subsequently left.

Carneiro’s barrister, Mary O’Rourke QC, told ITV: “We’re not expecting a resolution today. The two sides are so far apart financially. And we want Mr Mourinho to make a public apology.”
