Salt Bae crashes Real Madrid Champions League victory party and grabs Ronaldo in resurfaced pics after Messi snub | The Sun

SALT Bae is seen gatecrashing Real Madrid’s Champions League winning party in resurfaced images.

The celebrity chef has found himself in the spotlight for the wrong reasons after being allowed onto the pitch following the World Cup final and badgering Lionel Messi for a selfie.

The Turkish cook and Instagram star – real name Nusret Gökçe – was seen even touch the winning trophy, against strict regulations.

FIFA has been forced to make a humiliating admission that he should never have been on the pitch in the first place.

But it’s not the first time the fame hungry chef has tried to muscle in on footballers’ celebrations.

After Real Madrid beat Liverpool in the Champions League in Kyiv back in the 2018, Salt Bae was seen in video posing with Cristiano Ronaldo.

He was also spotted with Sergio Ramos with the pair miming the chef’s distinctive salt sprinkling arm action.

And in a foretaste of what was to come, he even gets his hands on the Champions League trophy.

The images finish with Madrid defender Marcelo also doing the routine, while Salt Bae gives a thumbs-up to the camera.

Footage showed the chef pestering the Argentina squad as they celebrated their cup glory with their families after the nailbiting shootout.

He was seen grabbing hold of Lionel Messi by the shoulder at least twice as the baffled megastar tried to shrug him off.

Bae's persistence paid off as he finally got a selfie with the striker hailed the greatest of all time.

The chef was also seen forcing himself into lineups with other stars as they clutched the famous golden trophy.

He has now been barred from attending The US Open Cup, the equivalent of England’s FA Cup.

Action will be taken against staff who allowed him access after social media footage showed his cringeworthy exchanges with players including Lionel Messi, who did his best to avoid Salt Bae.

In a series of videos posted on his own Instagram, the steakhouse magnate interrupted the likes of Angel di Maria, Cristian Romero and Lisandro Martinez as they posed with the World Cup, leaving the trio looking awkward.

Fifa is conducting an internal investigation to see how the chef got onto the pitch.

He has no commercial relationship with Fifa and was not invited onto the pitch by Gianni Infantino Sky Sports News reports.
