Jose Mourinho pictured with Dr Eva Carneiro case 'notes’
It is the big cloud hanging over Jose Mourinho’s imminent appointment at Manchester United.
But the former Chelsea manager nevertheless failed to conceal on Tuesday what appeared to be documents relating to the sexism claim brought against him by Dr Eva Carneiro.
Arriving at his Belgravia home on Tuesday lunchtime, Mourinho was seen clutching in his left hand a stapled bunch of papers with the words 'Employment Tribunal’ clearly printed on them.
The first page of the documents, which was only partially concealed by a notepad, also included the words 'witness’ and 'evidence’.
Handwritten contributions were also visible, including the word “fantasy” and a sentence that appeared to read: “I have never heard this allegation before.” The words “not true” can also be made out.
A spokesman for Mourinho did not respond to requests for comment on whether the documents were related to the Carneiro case or whether the handwriting was that of the former Chelsea manager.
The emergence of the documents came less than 24 hours after Telegraph Sport revealed that the barrister representing Carneiro in her claim next month against Mourinho is a United season ticket holder.
