    Fifa has admitted he should have been allowed to pester the Argentina talisman on the pitch

    The Turkish cook and Instagram star – real name Nusret Gökçe – has left Qatar and is now in Dubai, according to a series of Instagram stories posted overnight.

    Most show diners in his pricey steakhouse – but he is also seen crushing weights at the gym.

    Gökçe, 39, is seen wearing his trademark round sunglasses and tiny red shorts while showing off his rippling thighs.

    And the camera zooms in to show exactly how much weight he is lifting on each of the machines.

    It comes after the chef faced a backlash from his own fans over his attention seeking antics at Sunday’s World Cup final.

    He was seen pestering Lionel Messi for a selfie in embarrassing scenes following Argentina’s nailbiting victory.

    Footage shows how he grabbed Messi by the shoulder at least twice as the baffled megastar tried to shrug him off.

    Gökçe – wearing a Fifa security pass – also muscled in on players’ celebrations and snatched the trophy from one winner’s baby.

    As well as spoiling the celebrations and annoying the winners, Gökçe also broke Fifa’s strict rules.

    It says only a select group are allowed to handle the £17million gold trophy including former winners and heads of state.

    Fifa was forced into a humiliating admission last night as fury over his conduct grew worldwide.

    It said Gökçe should not have been on the pitch and it will discipline staff as part of an official probe.

    The governing body said: “Following a review, Fifa has been establishing how individuals gained undue access to the pitch after the closing ceremony at Lusail Stadium on December 18.

    Salt Bae has also now been barred from attending The US Open Cup, the equivalent of England’s FA Cup, following the disgraceful scenes in Qatar.

    Organisers tweeted: “Salt Bae is hereby banned from the 2023 US Open Cup final.”

    The US Open Cup is a knockout competition featuring teams from the MLS as well as other domestic tournaments.

    Salt Bae has brushed off criticism of his conduct – and instead continued trying to show his closeness to football icons.

    He reposted an old video of him hugging Messi when he visited his Dubai steakhouse in 2018.

    And another vid shows his shrine to the late Diego Maradona with one table “permanently reserved”.

    That was despite Maradona ridiculing Salt Bae to his face with a hilarious dig at his “sprinkle” gesture.
