Ander Herrera, 33, took to his Instagram story to post an image mocking salt bae for pestering Lionel Messi after World Cup triumph.
How did Salt Bae behave? After hearing and seeing how the infamous chef’s disastrous run-in with Lionel Messi at the World Cup final, many people have wondered what gave him such guts.
The Turk, whose real name is Nusret Gökçe, shot to fame online in January 2017 for his technique for salting steaks. However, the same people who admired him have since stopped following him when he embarrassed them in Qatar.
Ander Herrera, a midfielder on loan from Paris Saint-Germain to Athletic Bilbao, has now joined in the internet jeering.
How then did the Spanish international make fun of him? Let’s look at it…
As a result of Messi’s incredible World Cup victory with Argentina, video of Salt Bae angrily yanking on the 35-year-old player’s arm has gone viral.

Herrera made the decision to mock the 39-year-old chef via his Instagram story.
The 33-year-old, whose contract with Manchester United terminated in 2019 and who PSG signed for free, uploaded an edited picture of Messi’s image in which the Argentine embraced the World Cup trophy while lying in bed. Salt Bae was edited into the picture to mock his clinging nature.
Getting too near to Messi in Qatar on a humiliating night when he had no business stealing the World Cup from players like Cristian Romero and Lisandro Martinez is clearly being made fun of.
When you continue reading, you will see what the 39-year-old cook actually did as the Argentinian couple tried to take pictures of themselves with the World Cup.
Romero was even holding his son, and it’s clear from the look on his face that he is not amused by Salt Bae’s attempts to interfere with what is undoubtedly the pinnacle of his footballing career.
Ander Herrera Agüera, a Spanish professional footballer who currently plays as a midfielder for La Liga team Athletic Bilbao while on loan from Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain, was born on August 14, 1989.
Real Zaragoza was where he started his career, followed by Athletic Bilbao in 2011 and then joined Manchester United for €36 million in 2014.
He was voted the English club’s player of the year for the 2016–17 campaign after helping them win the FA Cup, FA Community Shield, EFL Cup, UEFA Europa League, and the final of that competition (in which he was named man of the match).
He joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2019, where he won the domestic quadruple and started against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League Final, which PSG lost 1-0.
Additionally, he competed for Spain in the 2012 Summer Olympics and won tournaments with the country at the under-20 and under-21 levels. His senior international debut occurred in November 2016.
Who Is Salt Bae And What Did He Do in Qatar?
Nusret Gökçe, often known as Salt Bae, is a Turkish butcher, chef, food performer, and restaurateur. In January 2017, he gained notoriety for his distinctive method of seasoning steaks.
In videos posted on his restaurant’s Twitter account, Gökçe can be seen chopping steaks in style and drizzling salt onto the food with his fingertips, forearm, and dish.
His eye-catching appearance gave him the nickname “Salt Bae,” and he became a popular internet meme.
He is the owner of Nusr-Et, a network of exclusive steakhouses with locations in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, the United States, Turkey, and Greece. His name and the Turkish word for meat, “Et,” were combined to create the name of his chain of restaurants.
After Argentina’s victory in the championship game, chef and social media personality Salt Bae approached the team and “illegally” touched the Fifa World Cup Trophy.
On December 18, while Argentina was celebrating their World Cup victory, Turkish chef Salt Bae was spotted on the field at Lusail Stadium. Many onlookers harshly criticized his presence because they thought he was interfering with the players’ celebrations. Lionel Messi appeared especially displeased with the internet sensation.
Fifa has just jumped into action. The regulating authority claimed in a statement, “Following a review, Fifa has been establishing how individuals gained undue access to the pitch after the closing ceremony at Lusail stadium on 18 December. The appropriate internal action will be taken.”
