Everton defender Yerry Mina has been charged with misconduct in relation to a breach of the Football Association's betting regulations, the FA has announced.

According to the FA, Mina has been charged with breaching FA Rule E8 (3) by "participating in an advertisement for betting activity which is prohibited from engaging in."

It is understood the charge relates to an advert which Mina - who has until Friday to provide a response - appeared in for Betjuego in his home country of Colombia earlier this year.

The relevant section from the 2018-19 FA Handbook states: "An individual participant, when acting in a personal capacity, shall not be permitted to advertise or promote any betting activity that the participant is prohibited from engaging in by Rule E8(1) or E8(2)."

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association following his touchline dismissal in the 2-2 draw against Burnley on Easter Monday.

Sarri was sent to the stands in stoppage time during a fractious encounter at Stamford Bridge, although assistant Gianfranco Zola felt the decision was harsh as his fellow Italian "was just trying to tell our players to get in position".

The FA has said in a statement: "Maurizio Sarri has been charged with misconduct in relation to his behaviour in the 94th minute of Monday's (22/04/2019) Premier League fixture between Chelsea and Burnley.

"The Chelsea manager has until 18:00 on Friday (26/04/2019) to provide a response."

In a separate incident, referee Kevin Friend is understood to have received a complaint over claims of racial abuse directed by members of Burnley's backroom staff towards Sarri.

The alleged abuse aimed at Sarri was included in Friend's report in a tense fixture where David Luiz squared up to Ashley Westwood during a tunnel melee at full-time.
