He has opened more than 22 restaurants across the US, UK, Greece and Dubai, which have been attacked by critics as overrated but seem to be a hit with the public.

He sparked outrage last week when he appeared on the field after the World Cup final, celebrated with Lionel Messi and his teammates and even carried the famous trophy.

FIFA is now investigating how he was allowed to breach the rules of a tournament that has left a bitter taste in the mouth for football fans around the world.

After conducting a review, FIFA has been working to determine how individuals may have unjustified access to the pitch following the closing ceremony at Lusail Stadium on December 18. A SportsMail spokesperson said: “Appropriate internal action will be taken.”

Born in August 1983, Nusrat was one of five children. His father, Faik Gökçe, worked as a miner and had to spend months at a time away from the family home in a poor suburb east of Istanbul.

Speaking to The Times in 2019, Nosrat explained how he would often go to school in shoes and shirts that didn’t match his parents’ ability to buy him anything else.

Nusrat claims he left school at the age of 12 and started working as a butcher’s apprentice to help his father finance the family.

He recalls: ‘I got up at 6 in the morning, two hours into the train journey and 30 minutes after the train on the bus. Then all day, standing and working. No day off or holiday.

While working in Turkish steakhouses, the aspiring chef had to work his way up from the bottom, and his responsibilities reportedly included washing dishes.

Speaking to NBC in 2017, Nosrat explained, “Since I was 14 years old, I’ve worked over 13 hours a day as a kitchen runner for a butcher. I always hoped and wanted to open a restaurant.

After doing his military service at the age of 20, Nosrat managed to convince a bank to loan him £2,500 to visit Argentina to learn more about the meat industry.

When he was 27 years old, he opened his first restaurant in Istanbul and claimed to have made £4,500 on the first day. With the help of Turkish businessman Ferit Şahink, Nusrat set out to open branches in Ankara, Dubai and Doha.

However, he was always keen on conquering America one day and applied for a visa three times before his first successful application in 2009.

Although he made a name for himself in the restaurant business, Nesrut’s life changed overnight in 2017 when he shared a video of himself preparing an Ottoman steak, in his signature style, to Instagram.

The video – which has garnered more than 17 million views – shows the butcher sprinkling salt on the meat with his hand in the shape of a “cobra”.

Dressed in a white T-shirt and skinny black jeans, the “sensual” move earned Nosrat the title of “Instagram’s Sexiest Butcher.”

“All my feelings come from the flesh,” he told NBC. “Down to when I put salt on the meat.”

Following the success of the video, Nosrat served his famous gold-plated steaks at his restaurants – which have attracted the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, David Beckham, Usher and Kylian Mbappe over the years.

Diners haven’t been too impressed with the illustrious steakhouse, with a plethora of bad reviews earning it a rank of 20,491 out of 23,811 in D.C. on TripAdvisor in late 2021.

One person commented: ‘Don’t be fooled by the glamor and waste your money. Bad food. The meat was not tasty at all. Ended up eating a £5 kebab after a £300 bill… This place is London’s biggest joke.

While another wrote: “An insult to humanity. Worst food, worst service. Over £1,800 paid for the three of us. Poor quality, smelly meat, tiny portions. Instead of spending £50 at the local restaurant, it would be better! Never again.” another!’

Despite his huge online following, Nesrut has always remained shy about his private life and has previously confirmed that he has no time for a relationship.

‘The person I’m going to date,’ he told The Times in 2019, ‘you’d be pissed off because I don’t have time. I work until three in the morning. I like to make women happy, not unhappy.

However, the restaurateur set social media on fire five years ago when he posted a photo with nine kids — which fans speculated was entirely of him.
