FIFA is investigating the circumstances that led to ‘Salt Bae’ derailing Argentina’s World Cup celebrations in Qatar on Sunday.

The famous restaurant owner, whose real name is Nusret Gokce, was spotted on the pitch after the final trying to take selfies with Argentine players including Lionel Messi and holding the World Cup.

FIFA has told InNewCL Sports News that his access to the pitch was unauthorized and their rules state that only the world champions and heads of state are allowed to touch the trophy during the closing ceremony.

A FIFA spokesman said: “Following an investigation, FIFA has identified individuals illegally gaining access to the pitch after the closing ceremony at Lusail Stadium on December 18. Appropriate internal measures will be taken.”

Salt Bae is understood to have no ties to FIFA President Gianni Infantino, who was previously pictured visiting one of his restaurants. It is also believed that no business relationship exists between FIFA and Salt Bae.

However, Salt Bae is one of the 303 people Infantino follows on his Instagram.

The Turkish celebrity chef has been known by the pseudonym Salt Bae since he rose to fame on social media for his unique way of seasoning steaks.

Hosting the stars at its restaurants, Salt Bae’s presence caused a social media storm among the celebrating Argentine players, with the new world champions appearing apathetic to his involvement.

Messi appeared to be trying to get away after the celebrity chef grabbed his arm, while Lisandro Martinez looked less than pleased to be pictured next to him with the World Cup trophy.

A compilation video on Twitter of stunned gamers alongside Gokce has racked up more than 14 million views since it was posted Monday afternoon.
