FIFA to probe Salt Bae´s undue access to pitch after World Cup Final

Zurich, Dec 23 (Prensa Latina) The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) will open an investigation into irregularities in the Qatar 2022 World Cup awards ceremony, specialized media announced.

Regarding the incidents, the most controversial was the popular Turkish Chef Salt Bae´s undue access to the pitch, who was pictured holding and kissing the World Cup trophy alongside Argentina players after their win over France.

The FFIFA World Cup Trophy, which is made of solid gold and depicts two figures holding up the globe, can only be touched and held by a select group of people. This includes former winners and heads of state, according to FIFA.

Football fans were infuriated after Salt Bae, who is also a social media personality, was seen grabbing Argentina’s star player Lionel Messi on the pitch.

The fact generated great controversy and rejection among FIFA World Cup lovers, who described Salt Bae´s undue access to the trophy as disrespectful.
