Yerry Mina is a player who gets an impressive amount of attention from the world press.
He may not be a superstar, but everything about him becomes big news, especially in Spain and South America.
With the defender now unavailable to play for Everton due to a fifth metatarsal injury, several outlets have been writing stories about the Toffees’ concern over him.
Catalan outlet Sport is one of them, and they bring a special article recalling that Mina has been struggling with this kind of injury for a long time now.
They claim Mina had problems four times.
First when fracturing a metatarsal playing for Palmeiras in 2017. He stayed healthy for a while, then got injured in the World Cup with an abductor issue.
The third injury was a fracture on his fourth metatarsal, which delayed his debut for the Toffees. And now, the fifth metatarsal problem will leave him out for a while.
Sport calls it ‘bad luck’, but for being a newspaper from Barcelona, maybe it sounds like good luck for the Catalan side, who got rid of a player full of injury problems.
