Many people were outraged by Salt Bae’s doings during the World Cup.

What did he do?

In case you missed anything, let me quickly start at the beginning:

Salt Bae, also known as Nusret Gökçe, made his way onto the field following Argentina’s victory over France in the world cup final. Then, he grabbed the FIFA World Cup trophy and kissed it while pestering a few players, including Lionel Messi, into posing for pictures.

He is no longer permitted to go to the 2023 U.S. Open Cup final because of what he did.

On Tuesday, the game’s official Twitter account posted the following:

FIFA has not yet disclosed any sanctions.

According to information gathered by, the organization has started an investigation into how he entered the pitch following the game. FIFA further claimed that his presence on the pitch violated the World Cup’s regulation that only champions and leaders of state are permitted to touch the trophy. The World Cup Trophy made of 18-carat gold costs about $20 million.

A lot of people reacted angrily when Salt Bae went onto the playing field during sporting events and took pictures with the football player and the trophy.

The renowned Turkish chef posed with the football players after arriving on the pitch with the whistle for the 2022 World Cup championship game.

The well-known Turkish chef who posed with Di Maria for a shot also snapped one while holding the World Cup. He then requested to be photographed with Messi while being held on Messi’s arm.

Nusret, who insisted against Messi’s uncomfortable attitude, received a huge reaction on social media. “Messi said ‘no’ to Salt Bea twice,” fans wrote on social media.

That is why the United States took the initial action. A football competition held in the Country since 1914, the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup, has stated that Nusret Gokce has been barred from participating.
