Huge blow for Everton before the restart of the season

Yerry Mina is believed to miss the resumption of the season as he got injured and this is a huge blow for Everton just before Project Restart’.

The Colombian has established himself as a regular starter for the Toffees this season, which is set to restart on June 17. Mina has been suffering with injuries in his first season with Everton as he joined them from Barcelona in 2018.

However, now the defender joins Jean-Philippe Gbamin on the treatment table after he suffered a partial tear in his left thigh during training last week.

Everton made a statement on their official site saying: “Everton Football Club can confirm Yerry Mina is set to be sidelined for several weeks after sustaining a muscle injury.

“A scan confirmed the Colombia international suffered a partial tear in his left quad muscle during training last week.

“The 25-year-old is now in the early stages of his rehabilitation under the care of the club’s medical staff and making good progress.”

Gbamin, who got injured earlier last week, will have to go under surgery and the club is expecting that he will require an ‘extensive period of rehabilitation’.

The 24-year-old made only two appearances for the Toffees this season following his €25million move from the Bundesliga team Mainz in the summer of 2019. He was sidelined as he got quad problem, which required surgery in February.
