JAKE PAUL ripped into Salt Bae for “disrespecting” Lionel Messi at the World Cup final.
Salt Bae tried to grab Messi’s attention before posing for photos with Argentina stars.
He even grabbed the World Cup trophy from the players for his own special moment in the limelight.
YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul was not impressed with Salt Bae’s behaviour and was shocked to realise he has a history of annoying players.
Paul shared a photo of Salt Bae posing for a pic alongside Mo Salah after he picked up an injury in the 2018 Champions League final, which Liverpool lost.
Salah had his arm in a sling in the photo and looked miserable next to a beaming Salt Bae.
Paul shared the photo as well as one of Salt Bae and Messi and captioned his Twitter post: “This dude has been disrespecting GOATs way too long.
“I may have found someone who annoys me more than KSI.”
Salt Bae has a track record of gatecrashing team celebrations and has posed alongside famous sports stars to boost his own popularity.
