It was obviously a big blow for Colombia to miss out on the 2022 World Cup, and that was more than enough to make the local media very angry with the squad.

That still didn’t stop national team leaders such as Everton’s Yerry Mina and Juventus’ Juan Cuadrado from speaking to the press. And they recently claimed there were no issues within the squad.

As shared by, the Toffees’ defender claimed there was a ‘family atmosphere’, where everyone was ‘united’, even though they couldn’t achieve the goal of getting a spot in Qatar.

After reading Mina’s comments, journalist Carlos Antonio Venez slammed both the Everton player and Cuadrado. He insists he doesn’t believe them, hinting that they have been responsible for the dismissal of manager Reinaldo Rueda.

“I just read 2 ‘little angels’ who were part of the World Cup elimination. According to them, they did not remove any coach and they are a ‘family’. They took the opportunity to ‘rubbish’ journalists and media outlets that they will go to when they retire to stay current and thus do their business. Cute,” said Venez.

“I do not believe anything, they came out to say that they are a family and that they are united, I have how to prove that there were altercations, that they forced out a manager and that they were not at the level required.”

As Yerry Mina now faces this controversial situation at Colombia, he now must sort out his future at club level as well, since several stories have been claiming that Everton are putting him up for sale this summer.
