MLB: Red Sox fans warn Liverpool that owners will do a ‘Mookie Betts’ with Mohamed Salah

Until not long ago, it was believed that the superstellar of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Mookie Betts, would stay with the Boston Red Sox throughout his career, being one of his best players in the recent history of the franchise being World Series champion and MVP winner. However, the team’s owners had other plans and decided that they would not spend the money on the renovation of Mookie Betts.

Something similar is happening with Liverpool in the Premier League with its Egyptian star and probably the best soccer player in the world at the moment, Mohamed Salah. The Red Sox and Liverpool are owned by Fenway Sports Group, with billionaire John W. Henry being the main owner of the consortium, and apparently he is not willing to take out the wallet to renew Salah’s contract with the Reds, according to reports from the English press.

in a kind of Deja vu and of a certain twinning between Red Sox and Liverpool fans, Boston fans have warned on Twitter what happened to Mookie Betts and regret with their brothers in England that the same could happen with Mohamed Salah and Liverpool, with John W Henry and FSG letting their biggest star go for “stinginess”.

Mohamed Salah’s contract expires at the end of the 2022-23 season, with reports indicating that negotiations between Liverpool (and FSG) are stalled due to “the Pharaoh” asking for a salary of 400 thousand pounds sterling a week , making him one of the best paid in the entire Premier League, with the Egyptian asking to be recognized as the best player in the club’s recent history and his contributions.

And it is not for less, since Mohamed Salah has scored 148 goals since arriving in Merseyside and has already won the elusive Premier League, a Champions League, European Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.

I’m a fan of the San Francisco Giants, number one defender of Barry Bonds, and hater of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to have the World Series taken from them for their cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy football, flag football, basketball, and just about any other game that involves a ball or ball. I’m also an amateur musician, a penniless gamer and very nerdy.
