A divisive statue of Michael Jackson outside an English professional soccer club’s homeground is to be removed.
Businessman Mohamed Al Fayed commissioned the statue following Jackson's death in June 2009, with the intention for it to find a home at his Harrods store in London. Al Fayed sold Harrods in 2010, and the statue was erected outside the grounds of his Fulham Football Club.
At the time, Al Fayed told fans they could "go to hell" if they didn’t appreciate the gloved Jackson statue. Al Fayed insists Jackson was a fan of the club, and the artist attended a match in 1999.
