Former Barcelona defender and Everton defender, Yery Mina has been charged with misconduct in relation to FA’S betting rule.
In an official statement issued, it is said that “ Everton FC’s Yery Mina has been charged with misconduct in relation to FA’S betting rule.”
“It is alleged that the defender breached FA rule E8 (3) by participating in an advertisement for betting activity which he is prohibited from engaging in.”
“He has until Friday (26/07/2019) to provide a response.”
Mina appeared in an advertisement for BetJuego in his home country, Colombia, for which he has been charged of misconduct.
The rule which the Everton defender violated reads: “AN INDIVIDUAL PARTICIPANT, WHEN ACTING IN A PERSONAL CAPACITY, SHALL NOT BE PERMITTED TO ADVERTISE OR PROMOTE ANY BETTING ACTIVITY THAT THE PARTICIPANT IS PROHIBITED FROM ENGAGING IN BY RULE E8(1) OR E8(2).”
If found guilty of misconduct, Mina could face suspension or a fine as a penalty for breaching the code of conduct.
While the Football Association would be deciding on Mina’s case, earlier last week, former Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge was fined £75,000 and suspended by an independent body appointed by the Football Association.
Sturridge was however charged with violating a different section of the betting rules.
