FIFA to launch investigation after CONTROVERSIAL figure gets onto the pitch after World Cup final

Posted by

FIFA are reportedly set to launch an investigation into how popular steak chef Salt Bae managed to find his way onto the pitch during Argentina’s World Cup final celebrations.

After La Albiceleste beat France 4-2 on penalties to be crowned world champions, the chef, whose real name is Nusret Gokce, celebrated with the South Americans and even held the World Cup trophy, prompting the social media world to question why he was allowed to be there.

One clip that went viral was of Gokce with Manchester United’s Lisandro Martinez, who was caught with the most awkward look on his face, as the chef tried to grab a hold of the trophy while it was in the defender’s hands.

Gokce even tried to get the attention of Lionel Messi in the celebrations, but the PSG man was having none of it.

Naturally, FIFA president Gianni Infantino took a fair bit of stick, after a video was released of him enjoying some food at Gokce’s restaurant last year, with the Italian smiling gleefully as the Turk cut his steak.
