Salt Bae banned from World Cup because he touched the Trophy
Salt Bae, the famous turkish chef, won’t be invited to the next World Cup in 2026.
Salt Bae couldn’t. He didn’t have the right. A few days after being everywhere on the field after the World Cup, and even touching the trophy, it’s been confirmed that the chef will be banned from the next World Cup in 2026.
Nusret Gokce won’t be invited simply because he didn’t have permission to be on the field, and even worse, to touch the Cup. Only players, staff and officials can touche the famous trophy. ‘Its current design dates back to 1974,’ FIFA’s website reads. ‘As one of the most recognised sports symbols in the world and a priceless icon, the original FIFA World Cup Trophy can only be touched and held by a very select group of people, which includes former winners of the FIFA World Cup and heads of state.’
Salt Bae has been seen with almost all the argentinian players, even trying his best to get a photo with an annoyed Lionel Messi.
