Reports: Former Team Doctor To Sue Mourinho

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly the subject of an individual legal claim by former first-team doctor Eva Carneiro.

Doc Set To Sue Chelsea After Mourinho Row

It's been suggested that legal papers will be served to the Blues boss this week as part of separate but connected claims against him and the club.

The Portuguese tactician will then have to appear in person at an employment tribunal, unless the case is settled out of court beforehand.

Under employment law in England, an individual can be personally liable for damages if victimisation or discrimination can be proved.

The claim against Mourinho will be on the basis that he was the cause of Carneiro being dropped from first-team duties and effectively being demoted.

After the incident on 8 August, Carneiro did not appear on the bench again for Chelsea, and is now seeking a claim for constructive dismissal after parting ways with the Stamford Bridge club.

Earlier in the season, Mourinho was cleared of using discriminatory language towards the former first-team doctor after an investigation by the Football Association – this caused further controversy when Carneiro revealed she had not been spoken to during the investigation, nor was she asked to provide any statement.

Do you think Carneiro is right to blame Mourinho for her situation? Have your say in the comments section below.
