going on the pitch too early calling her "impulsive and naive".

Carneiro however quit her role at Stamford Bridge in September and has since sued CFC and Jose Mourinho claiming constructive dismissal against CFC and victimisation and discrimination against Mourinho respectively.

An extract from Mourinho’s statement, which was read out by the panel, said: “Filho da puta is a phrase I often use, all of the players know it. There is no sexist connotation in the use of the phrase – it is just like saying ‘f**k off’.

“In the world of football, a lot of swear words are used.”

Mourinho admits to using the Portuguese line "Fihlo da puta" meaning son of a b_tich/whore towards Carneiro but insists it has no sexist connotations.
Carneiro's representative Mary O'Rouke QC argues Mourinho used it because he was abusing a woman.

Chelsea cofirmed an open offer of £1.2m was made to Carneiro as settlement fee.

A statement on behalf of Chelsea and Mourinho stated: "The respondents have taken these steps only because they believe that it is in no-one's interests that this dispute should be determined through litigation.
