In response to the news that celebrity chef, Salt Bae, and others were allowed to pitch during the World Cup final in Qatar, FIFA has launched an investigation into what happened.
There were some pictures that went viral on social media recently that showed the Turkish chef, Nusret Gokce, holding up the World Cup trophy and celebrating with the Argentine players.
Taking possession of this prestigious trophy is a privilege granted to only a few people according to FIFA rules, such as World Cup winners, FIFA officials, and heads of state.
In addition, it is worth noting that several star footballers have dined at Salt Bae’s restaurants around the world, including Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and David Beckham.
As part of his social media campaign last month, Nusret Gokce posted a video on his social media page showing him embracing FIFA President, Gianni Infantino, which was seen by millions.
