24-year-old Mina appeared on TV for Colombian betting company Butjuego.

In order to lessen the gravity of the offense, the defender said, “command of the English language is limited” and he did “not understand the information on betting.”

Football Association responded on the matter and said the fine is “appropriate and proportionate in the circumstances.”

FA termed the case “unusual” and recognized “strong mitigation put forward by the player and his club,” which “significantly reduced the player’s culpability.”

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

Mina’s mitigation factors

  • Spanish advert
  • The broadcast did not happen outside Colombia and he withdrew immediately after realizing he had violated the betting rules
  • Mina never benefited from the advert. As a result, Yerry Mina’s Foundation received the money to help the disadvantaged in his hometown.
  • He owned up to the charges at the earlier opportunity and apologized for his mistake.

Consequently, the defender has played in all four of Everton’s Premier League games this season. The defender has featured in Colombia 2-2 draw with Brazil last Saturday and could be in concentration for selection ahead of his country’s friendly against Venezuela.
