The World Cup is held each 4 years and since 1974 the winner has been awarded the trophy in its present type – earlier than and since 1930, it was ‘the nice’ Jules Rimet. Only 6 groups have received the trophy since then. It is one of the most treasured stones in world soccer – 18-karat gold permits us to do that – so it has its personal guidelines, safety and historical past.
We are speaking about the World Cup. Or we talked about it.
The current World Cup has made us understand that security is misplaced after the last whistle. Obviously, FIFA’s rule that solely the winners, who’re accountable for controlling the soccer and the heads of the international locations won’t apply. The motive?
We noticed Salt Bae raise the most necessary trophy of the recreation.
The chef, who is definitely known as Nusret Gokce and acquired his nickname after he grew to become well-known for the manner he sprinkles salt on the meat he serves (virtually the whole choreography), managed to conceal his pleasure at the end of the competitors. Not least on the social community, the place his reputation has grown considerably lately – in May, for instance, when opening his restaurant in New York, he revealed movies of individuals like Neymar, Daniel Alves, Tom Brady or Mark Wahlberg. he away, good luck.
On Sunday, in Qatar, Salt Bae was in a position to contact and kiss the trophy that was given to the winners of the World Cup and work together with the gamers of Argentina, Lionel Messi included.
Several former and present Argentine gamers, similar to Messi himself and Diego Maradona, have handed by some of Gokce’s eating places over the years. Turk’s reputation will not be solely in the kitchen, but additionally on TV, which has attracted the consideration of the most well-known names in the world. What determines its success is the enlargement it has achieved over the years. Today it has eating places in Turkey, the United States, England, Greece, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.
So is that this what explains the supervisor’s entry to the stadium that hosted the World Cup last? Not solely. You ought to take a look at the different hyperlinks that, sure, Gokce has.
His relationship with FIFA started in 2013, in accordance to the Spanish web site “Relevo”. At that point, the president was Joseph Blatter, with whom he revealed a picture on Instagram. There, Turk was not but known round the world, nor did he have practically 50 million followers on the platform he has right now, however his closeness to FIFA was already evident.
After that, the relationship grew to become plain.
Gianni Infantino, President of FIFA and one of these million followers, has been seen a number of instances in Salt Bae’s restaurant and, on the different hand, the chef has already been invited to occasions similar to “The Best” gala.
When he was given entry to the final match between Argentina and France, at the Lusail stadium, the Instagram superstar did what he is aware of how to do effectively on social media: he took footage that he revealed later and pretended to pour salt. above the cup.
However, all this led to two issues – he grabbed the trophy and interrupted the celebrations of the gamers and their households by repeatedly insisting on asking them to take footage.
Faced with the state of affairs, and the unhappiness of many, FIFA determined to open an investigation and promised “inside actions” in how the chef entered the celebrations of the nationwide workforce of Argentina.
“Following a assessment, FIFA has established how individuals gained unauthorized entry after the closing ceremony at Estádio Lusail, on December 18”, the assertion mentioned.
Although Salt Bae’s relationship with Infantino was public, plainly the president had no function in the matter and such “insider” can have to do with one other FIFA official who let him in.
