>> Former Chelsea doctor arriving at a London court on Monday. It's the first day of what may prove a lengthy case pitting the doctor against the club and its former manager Jose Marino. In her hearing is expected to file for constructive dismissal against the club and the separate sex discrimination and victimization claim against Marino.

>> And Dr. Cornero they will not be on the bench. The 42-year-old was removed from her duties as first team doctor last September, when she clashed with Mourinho in the closing minutes of a league match. Reuter's Jonathan Crane has more on the story.>> So this actually goes back ten months now, to the very first match of the Premiere League season, Chelsea against Swansea.

It was 0-0 Into the late stages of the game, Chelsea already down to ten members their goal keeper Tibo had been sent off. Goes down injured and as you might expect, the team doctor ran onto the pitch to treat him and the. Problem, as far as JC Marinia was concerned, every time that someone goes onto the pitch to treat a player, the player has to go off to Chelsea, we're then down to nine men.

Marinia was incandescent with anger and this is where it's all stemmed from, the two were then suspended from first team duties. They were taken off first team duties, and Cornero never returned to the club.>> The case is expected to run for seven to ten days. During the proceedings, witness statements, and documents, such as texts and emails, are likely to be made public.

>> And one thing that a lot of this will also come down to. They're getting in Portuguese experts to decide the phrase Marinio used. And I won't repeat the phrase because it's very offensive. But the phrase Marinio used, which way they could be interpreted. Whether it was discriminatory towards her as a woman, or it was just an ordinary obscenity.

>> Marinio was Chelsea's boss until his sacking last December, following poor sporting form. He has since taken over at Manchester United and is expected to appear in court later this week.
