She reportedly chose to take the case for hearing rather than accept the money.

Carneiro is claiming constructive dismissal against Chelsea and is also bringing separate legal action against Jose Mourinho, who is said to have referred to her as “daughter of a whore” in Portuguese in August, 2015, when she ran onto the field to attend to an injured player, Eden Hazard.

She is said claiming sex discrimination and harassment against the club's former manager following the incident.
