London - Former Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro on Tuesday agreed a deal to settle a case against Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho for alleged discrimination for an undisclosed sum, an AFP reporter at the hearing said.

"The parties agreed to the settlement of this dispute on confidential terms," a Chelsea representative said at the start of a brief hearing.

Carneiro said she was "relieved" to have concluded the tribunal case, calling it an "extremely difficult and distressing time for me and my family," in a statement issued after the announcement.

Chelsea said it was "pleased" that an agreement had been reached.

"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," said a club statement.

The tribunal was examining a claim of constructive dismissal against Chelsea and a connected, personal legal action against Portuguese boss Mourinho, who left the Blues in December, for alleged victimisation and sexual discrimination.

Mourinho made an unexpected appearance alongside Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck at the London South Employment Tribunal in suburban Croydon on Tuesday, shortly before the announcement of the settlement.
