Yerry Mina has been fined £10,000 for being part of a betting advert, as revealed in a statement from the FA which was published on Everton’s official website.

The statement claimed that the reason for the level of punishment was because the 24-year-old had donated the money earned to his foundation, admitted the charge at the earliest opportunity and apologised, as well as quickly asking for the advertisement to be taken down: Mina may have taken this well, but Everton supporters have been left confused by the charge their centre-back has been hit with, which hasn’t been helped by the prevalence of betting advertisements in the English game.

What is perhaps the most ironic case of this is that when the Colombian runs out to face AFC Bournemouth on Sunday, he will do so with SportPesa written on his chest.

This is certainly an intriguing case, which has, perhaps understandably, brought up some questions about practices regarding the betting industry in football.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the fine, including posts from bemused Everton fans, can be seen below: Everton fans, should Mina have been fined?
