Everton star stays at home for injury assessment

1st April 2019, 18:58 by Simon Barlow

Everton have given defender Yerry Mina permission to stay in Colombia and have his hamstring injury assessed by a local sports doctor.

Reports in Colombia claim the giant centre-back arrived in Cali last weekend and will now spend a few days with his family as he begins the rehabilitation process after suffering the injury on international duty.

Everton warned Colombia not to overload Mina before the £28m defender suffered a hamstring injury in a friendly defeat in South Korea on Tuesday.

It looks like he could be out for between six and eight weeks, which will effectively end his season, and puts any involvement at this summer's Copa America in doubt.

Everton have given the 21-year-old permission to continue his short stay in Colombia and he will use the time to consult some medical opinions about the process of rehabilitation from the injury.

Unofficially it has been reported that one of the doctors who would be consulting Mina is the doctor of Deportivo Cali, Gustavo Portela.
