Former Chelsea team doctor Eva Carneiro is launching an individual legal claim against the club's embattled manager Jose Mourinho, Britain's Press Association reported on Monday.

It follows last week's reports that Carneiro's lawyers had served notice on the club that she intends to seek a claim for constructive dismissal.

The additional, individual claim would oblige Mourinho to appear in person before an employment tribunal, unless an out-of-court settlement could be reached, potentially leaving him personally liable for damages.

Carneiro left Chelsea in September after being removed from first-team duties.

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 players.

Carneiro's reported claim against Mourinho is further bad news for the 52-year-old, whose position is under scrutiny after Chelsea lost six of their first 11 Premier League games and slumped to 15th place in the table.
