It seems almost every week a Premier League player is picking up a fine or something equivalent of that for actions off the pitch, and Yerry Mina has become the lastest player to be served such punishment.

The Everton defender was fined £10,000 by the FA for appearing in a betting commercial in his native country of Colombia, with the club confirming on their official website Mina admitted to the charge at the earliest possible time.
The news was expected from Everton fans, and some took to social media to react to Mina’s fine.
