Croydon - Jose Mourinho is expected to be cross-examined at
an employment tribunal brought by former Chelsea first team doctor Eva
Carneiro, which opened on Monday.
The public tribunal heard that new Manchester United manager
Mourinho is likely to be questioned for at least a day during the case.
Carneiro is claiming constructive dismissal against Chelsea
and a connected, personal legal action against Mourinho, who left the Blues in
December, for alleged victimisation and discrimination.
The parties failed to agree a settlement which would have
prevented a public hearing.
The case at the London South Employment Tribunal in suburban
Croydon is expected to take seven to 10 days.
Carneiro, 42, is expected to begin giving two and a half
days of evidence from Tuesday.
Mourinho, one of the most celebrated coaches in European
football, did not attend the tribunal on Monday.

Carneiro arrived with her husband, the polar explorer Jason
Mourinho dropped Carneiro as Chelsea's first team doctor
after the Blues' opening match of last season in the English Premier League, a
2-2 draw at home to Swansea on August 8.
Mourinho angrily berated her after she and physio Jon Fearn
went on the pitch to treat midfielder Eden Hazard, which meant Chelsea were
temporarily down to nine players -- goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois having already
been sent off.
The Portuguese boss branded Carneiro and Fearn
"impulsive and naive". She did not appear on the bench again for
first-team duties and later parted company with Chelsea.For
