Jose Mourinho has spent the last couple of weeks living the dream. 

Since being appointed Manchester United manager, the former Chelsea boss has been lapping up attention from fans, players, and press alike as he revels in the chance to restore his reputation back in the Premier League. 

But however much he'd like to move on from his final disastrous season at Chelsea, which culminated in his sacking in December, there's one thing stopping him from doing that.

Awkward meeting 

On Monday morning, he must face Eva Carneiro in court. 

For those who don't remember, Carneiro was one of the doctors who went to Eden Hazard's aid on the field, only to be slammed by Mourinho after the game, with the manager claiming she didn't understand football. 

Removing Hazard from play left the Blues with nine men because Thibaut Courtois had already been sent off, but it appeared necessary as the Belgian midfielder remained on the floor. 

Carneiro left Chelsea shortly after the incident, which saw her row furiously with Mourinho on the touchline and is now suing the club for constructive dismissal.

The Guardian report she also has a separate case against Mourinho personally for discrimination and victimisation. 

It is believed that case will examine evidence about a particular Portuguese word Mourinho used and whether it targeted her gender. 

This will be the third hearing, after court cases in January and February couldn't find a conclusion and the parties have not been able to settle out of court. 

Chelsea have continued to support Mourinho over the matter despite his dismissal last year, but the case has raised wider questions about gender discrimination in football.
