Chelsea v Dr Eva Carneiro kicks off soon
After the Premier League has wound down for the summer – and Chelsea are calling Avram Grant to manage the team- Dr Eva Carneiro will give testimony in her constructive dismissal case against Chelsea.
The case will begin tomorrow at the London South Employment Tribunal in Croydon. The judge will set a timetable for the case.
The Guardian says the date for a full hearing “could be fixed for some time in June but there may be another preliminary hearing arranged before that takes place. The parties may also agree to a settlement before the case is heard.”
The good doctor is also taking a personal legal action against Chelsea’s former manager José Mourinho for alleged victimisation and discrimination.
The 42-year-old doctor was dropped from first-team duties after Mourinho criticised her and the first-team physio Jon Fearn for going on to the pitch to treat Eden Hazard on the opening day of the season.
The action meant Chelsea were temporarily down to nine men against Swansea and 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.
Only Fearn remains at the club. Come June, and judging by the way Roman Abramovich goes through staff, he could be managing it…
