There is a new development in the on-going legal dispute between the London club Chelsea, club’s manager Jose Mourinho and club’s former Dr. Eva Carneiro. A court date has been set for Carneiro’s case against Chelsea and Mourinho and both sides’ legal sides will meet at the London South Employment Tribunal in Croydon on January 6.
According to Sky Sports, Carneiro’s legal team will claim for her client’s reinstatement as first team doctor, personal injury compensation and aggravated damages from the club, and damages for sexual discrimination from Mourinho. On sides will meet a day in advance on 6 December to present the list of evidences, they will be putting forward, in front of the senior judge. This evidence will most likely include the texts and emails exchanged between the parties during and after Carneiro’s sacking on August 8.
Carneiro was infamously dropped as team’s physio by Jose Mourinho after she rushed onto the field to attend Eden Hazard during the season opener against Swansea City.
The Portuguese manager has already been cleared by the FA over the charge of using discriminatory language against Carneiro.
Back in October, Carneiro criticized the FA over their failure to handle the rampant sexism in the game: “Last season I had a similar experience at a game at West Ham FC, where I was subject to verbal abuse. Following complaints by the public, the FA produced a communication to the press saying there had been no sexist chanting during this game. At no time was I approached for a statement despite the fact that vile unacceptable, sexually explicit abuse was clearly heard.”
