Chelsea latest:doctor Eva Carneiro has appeared at a tribunal hearing for her constructive dismissal case

  

According to reports on Monday - ex-Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro has appeared at a tribunal hearing for her constructive dismissal case against the Premier League champions.

The 42-year-old Briton left London South Employment Tribunal in Croydon later in the day without comment.

Her lawyer, Mary O'Rourke QC, did not confirm if there had been any settlement and said the proceedings were "confidential".

Carneiro is suing Chelsea for breach of contract and constructive dismissal.

Chelsea filed their defence in the tribunal hearing in December.

There is a separate but connected legal claim against former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho for alleged discri­mina­tion.

Carneiro was dropped from first-team duties after then boss Mourinho criticised her and first-team physio Jon Fearn for going on to the pitch to treat Eden Hazard during the 2-2 draw with Swansea on the opening day of the season.

Chelsea were temporarily down to nine men as a result, and afterwards Mourinho called Carneiro and Fearn "impulsive and naive".

Carneiro did not appear on the bench again for first-team duties and later parted company with the club.

Mourhino subsequently left in December to be replaced by Guus Hiddink.
