Everton defender Yerry Mina is recovering from his latest injury in Colombia, according to the country’s media.

El País claims that the player spent the weekend in Cali, along with his family, and in a few days will start the process of returning to fitness.

Yerry Mina picked up a hamstring injury playing a friendly for Colombia last week. Toffees manager Marco Silva made no efforts to hide his annoyance with the situation, saying the club told the national team the player wasn’t ready to start two games.

El País says that Mina will now ‘consult a few medical opinions’ in his home country, and he’s expected to miss from six to eight weeks, which would basically leave him out of the rest of the season, but still gives chances for the Copa America.

The outlet also comes up with some ‘unofficial’ information saying one of the doctors who will be consulted over the Everton defender’s injury is Gustavo Portela, from Deportivo Cali.

From the perspective of the Premier League club, throwing everything into being ready for the Copa America may not be the most beneficial plan long term.
