Chelsea settle Carneiro

A confidential settlement has been reached in the employment tribunal involving Eva Carneiro, Jose Mourinho and Chelsea - who have "apologised unreservedly" to their former doctor.

Following talks between the two parties, it was confirmed that a settlement had been reached.

A Chelsea statement read: "Chelsea Football Club is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Dr Carneiro which brings her employment tribunal proceedings against the club and Jose Mourinho to an end.

"The club regrets the circumstances which led to Dr Carneiro leaving the club and apologises unreservedly to her and her family for the distress caused. We wish to place on record that in running onto the pitch Dr Carneiro was following both the rules of the game and fulfilling her responsibility to the players as a doctor, putting their safety first.

"Dr Carneiro has always put the interests of the club's players first.  Dr Carneiro is a highly competent and professional sports doctor. She was a valued member of the club's medical team and we wish her every success in her future career.

"Jose Mourinho also thanks Dr Carneiro for the excellent and dedicated support she provided as first team doctor and he wishes her a successful career."

Carneiro left Chelsea in September following an argument with Mourinho on the opening day of the season and claimed constructive dismissal against the club.
