Everton defender Yerry Mina has been fined and warned about his future conduct after appearing in an advertisement for a Colombian betting company. Mina, a center back for Colombia's national team, admitted to a misconduct charge by the English Football Association.
The FA said Mina was fined 10,000 pounds ($12,300). Mina breached the FA's betting rules by taking part in a promotional advert for Betjuego. Everton said Mina demanded the ad, which was only broadcast in Colombia, be removed as soon as he was informed it breached betting rules in England, and that he did not profit directly from the ad because the fee was going to his charitable foundation for disadvantaged children in Colombia.
The club also said Mina hadn't understood the FA's rules on betting because his command of English was limited.
