Only a very limited number of people are allowed to touch, let alone kiss, the original World Cup. Nusret Gökçe wasn’t really interested. But how did the man who calls himself Salt Bay get the trophy in the first place? FIFA wants to at least investigate this now.

a(b) There are consequences, time will tell. But FIFA wants at least an investigation into the events of the closing ceremony of the World Cup in Qatar after the Argentine national team won the title. FIFA said that FIFA had determined that people at Doha’s Lusail Stadium had gained unauthorized access to the stadium, and announced that appropriate internal measures would be taken.

Argentina’s celebrations of superstar Lionel Messi after beating France on penalties included celebrity restaurateur Nusret Gökçe – also known by his stage name Salt Bay – taking pictures of the Argentine players. There are also pictures of him holding the World Cup.

Gökçe’s “appearance” caused a lot of controversy – and brought him a storm of bullshit. Apparently, he was approved by FIFA, which allowed him to enter the field after the final. By touching the cup, he proudly posted pictures on social networks, not only violating good manners, but also the regulations of the World Federation. There is a stipulation that only current and former world champions, heads of state and selected FIFA employees are allowed to touch the original trophy – even a noisy Gökçi kisses the trophy.

A video clip, for example, shows him running after Messi to congratulate him. However, at first it was demonstrably refused, and only later did Gökce get a rather obligatory selfie with the Argentina captain, which he promptly posted on Instagram for PR purposes.

Gökce runs one of his fine restaurants in Doha. He is best known for his videos in which he salts meat with a strange gesture – hence his nickname. During the tournament he attended other matches and appeared several times with FIFA coach Gianni Infantino. In addition to his reclusive appearance, outrageous prices and food boasts and waste are now criticized in his videos.

At the beginning of 2019, former Bayern Munich professional Franck Ribery’s visit to Nusrat restaurant in Dubai caused a stir. At the time, Ribéry was attacked on social networks for eating a gold-plated steak. As a result, he let out a rant on the Internet – and thus received a fine from Bayern Munich.

In the early days of the World Cup in Qatar, the correspondent of the Munich newspaper “tz” was a guest at Nusret Gökçe’s restaurant. He posed for a photo with the reporter, but when the reporter asked for a short interview, he refused. “No, my friend. Thinking globally: The New York Times, CNN. If I work there one day, we can do an interview,” Gökçe was quoted as saying.
