Bad injury news for Everton centre-half Yerry Mina


Everton & Yerry Mina

Everton fans might not be overly impressed with Colombian centre-half Yerry Mina.

Signed for £28 million, Mina, 24, has made only 12 Premier League appearances this season.

The South America, who made a big impact at the World Cup, has been injured repeatedly during the campaign.

Before last weekend’s defeat to West Ham, Marco Silva bemoaned Mina’s latest injury.

The centre-half suffered a hamstring injury during the recent international break.

Silva told the press, “we knew before he went to the international team that it could have been a risk to play two matches. We communicated this to them but we cannot control their decisions.”

Yerry Mina is back in Colombia, season may be over

Colombian paper El Pais have reported that Mina is now back in his homeland during his recovery period.

It’s reported the Everton defender spent time in Valle del Cauca with his family.

Moreover, it’s claimed that Mina is out for six to eight weeks. That would effectively end his Premier League season.

El Pais note that Mina has permission from Everton to be back in Colombia.

During his stay, the player will consult with he doctor of Deportivo Cali, Gustavo Portela.

Reading between the lines, there’s the suggestion that Mina’s loyalty is bent towards his national team over Everton.

This summer it’s the Copa America in Brazil. It feels like Mina’s focus is to play at that event over working on his recovery to play for Everton as soon as possible.

Everton are 9th in the Premier League with 43 points from 32 games.
