Former Chelsea FC team doctor, Eva Carneiro, will continue her legal battle against the Premier League club after failing to reach a settlement at the first hearing in her constructive dismissal case.

Carneiro (42), was joined by her husband, the polar explorer Jason De Carteret, at London South Employment Tribunal for a private preliminary hearing before an employment judge.


She is claiming constructive dismissal after she was dropped from first-team duties and later left the club following criticism from then-manager Jose Mourinho.

"It's a private hearing, what happened was a private matter," a spokesman said. A date for the full tribunal is expected for some time in June.
