      Chelsea and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho have reached a settlement with former team doctor Eva Carneiro over claims she was constructively dismissed by the club and discriminated against by its former manager.

      Mourinho – who had not been expected to attend until he was due to give evidence next Monday and Tuesday – arrived at the tribunal in Croydon just after 1pm on Tuesday, along with Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck.

      Their arrival delayed the start of day two, which had been due to start at 2pm, and a settlement was announced shortly before 3.30pm.

      A statement on the club's official website 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.”
