Michael Jackson Statue removed. Rejected by fans

There seems to be a thing about football statues.  Not all of them go down well with fans.

The Fulham Football Club took down the controversial Michael Jackson statue outside Craven Cottage and sent it back to Al Fayed.  Fans were so not enamoured with it.

Revamp

The new chairman Shahid Khan said fans had made their views clear and that it was the right thing to do.  The club said the tribute does not fit in with a revamp of the stadium:  “The statue is not part of the Riverside development of the stadium and will be returned to the former chairman in due course.”  There was anger when the King of Pop statue was installed at Fulham Football Club.

“Go to hell”

In 2011, Mohamed Al-Fayed, the Egyptian billionaire and then chairman, infuriated fans when he unveiled the Michael Jackson monument which they say has nothing to do with Fulham FC. Al-Fayed said they could ‘go to hell’ and that the statue was staying.

But fans have views and not too many impressed with the statue.  Place in a prominent place of the Club it couldn’t be missed.

At the time of the unveiling ynuk.tv spoke to Fulham FC  fans about the whole idea
