It is a time-honored tradition for only World Cup champions to hold the coveted trophy. So, how did Salt Bae get a chance to raise the cup? The famed chef was seen holding the trophy after Argentina’s tournament win last Sunday. He also kissed it. Fans are wondering how Salt Bae got onto the soccer pitch. Reports say that FIFA chief Gianni Infantino is good friends with the chef, and that’s how access was granted. FIFA has not commented on the backlash.
