Eva Carneiro settles claim with Chelsea
Carneiro also agrees to drop claim of sex discrimination and harassment against former Chelsea manager José Mourinho.
The former Chelsea team doctor Eva Carneiro has settled her claim of constructive dismissal, minutes before she was due to give testimony that was expected to be highly damaging.
Carneiro also agreed to drop a claim of sex discrimination and harassment against the former Chelsea manager José Mourinho as part of the confidential deal struck on Tuesday.
In a statement, Chelsea apologised “unreservedly” to Carneiro over the incident that led to her departure, when she ran on to the pitch during a match at Stamford Bridge last August to treat an injured player.
Chelsea said it now accepted that Carneiro had done nothing wrong and that she was a “highly competent and professional sports doctor”.
