    LONDON: Former Chelsea team doctor Eva Carneiro attended a tribunal hearing on Wednesday regarding her constructive dismissal case against the club. Carneiro made no comment to the media as she arrived for the hearing flanked by her legal team in Croydon, south London. The preliminary hearing at London South Employment Tribunal is being held in private before an employment judge and will outline the timetable for the case. Carneiro, 42, left Chelsea in September after being removed from first-team duties by manager Jose Mourinho, who was sacked by the Premier League champions last month. Mourinho had rebuked her and physiotherapist Jon Fearn for running onto the pitch to treat Eden Hazard during his side’s 2-2 draw with Swansea City on the season’s opening day, which temporarily left Chelsea with nine men. Mourinho called Carneiro and Fearn “impulsive and naive”, but the Premier League Doctors’ Group said failure to treat Hazard would have been a breach of their care of duty.
