Former Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro says she wants Jose Mourinho to “make a public apology” as an amicable resolution to her suit remains way off.
Carneiro sued Chelsea for ‘constructive dismissal’ and has a separate personal legal action against Mourinho, who was sacked in December, for alleged victimization and discrimination.
The Spaniard was criticised by Mourinho and dropped from first-team duties on the opening day of the season after she rushed onto the pitch to treat Eden Hazard with Chelsea a man down.
“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,” her barrister, Mary O’Rourke QC, told ITV News :
Any proposed settlement must be agreeable to all three parties involved, otherwise the case would be scheduled to proceed to an employment tribunal which would be heard in public in June, Mirror reports.
Carneiro, who got married last late last year, appeared at a tribunal hearing in January for three hours, but no settlement was reached.
However, there is also the prospect that Chelsea, who have refused to comment on the proceedings, and Mourinho could settle the case at any time.
