Michael Jackson - Fulham's Michael Jackson Statue To Be Returned To Al Fayed

Bosses at Fulham Football Club in London are retiring their Michael Jackson statue that was an odd gift from former chairman Mohamed Al Fayed.

The team's Craven Cottage stadium is set to undergo redevelopment, and it has been decided the Jackson statue has to go.

A spokesman for Fulham Fc says, "The statue is not part of the Riverside development of the stadium and will be returned to the former chairman in due course."

The gift to the club from the Harrods boss, who once treated his late pop star friend to a tour of the ground in 1999, has always been unpopular among fans, who felt Jackson had no connection to the team.

Speaking out about the criticism, Al Fayed told the Bbc, "If some stupid fans don't understand and appreciate such a gift they can go to hell."

I hope Al-Fayed has somewhere to put this statue and doesn't allow someone to destroy it!
