Everton Midfielder, Yerry Mina Fined £10,000 For Breaking English FA Betting Rules

According to 36Naija Sports, Everton’s Yerry Mina has been fined £10,000 after he was found guilty of breaching the Football Association betting rules.

The 24-year-old Columbian international appeared in a TV advert for Colombian betting company Betjuego.

In mitigation, Everton FC said that Mina’s “command of the English language is limited” and as such, he did “not understand the information on betting”.

The English FA said that the fine is “appropriate and proportionate in the circumstances”.

Recall that Yerry Mina joined the Toffees from FC Barcelona last summer.

The English FA called the case “unusual” and recognised “strong mitigation put forward by the player and his club” which “significantly reduced Mina’s culpability”.

A warning alone would be insufficient to reflect the seriousness of such a breach given that the integrity of the game is potentially threatened by breaches of the FA’s betting rules,” the FA Regulatory Commission said.
