The Fulham chairman Mohammed Al Fayed has caused controversy after he placed Michael Jackson's giant statue outside the stadium, earlier this week. Al Fayed has told fans they can "go to hell" if they do not appreciate a new Michael Jackson statue at Craven Cottage stadium.
Mr. Al Fayed unveiled the statue on Sunday prior to the west London Premier League team’s match against Blackpool.
The statue was commissioned following Jackson's death in June 2009 and was due to be erected at Harrods before Mr Al Fayed sold the Knightsbridge store…
Outside the stadium, Fulham fan Michael Tune said: "We're a laughing stock. It has nothing to do with football."
Another Fulham fan, who wanted to remain anonymous, said: "It makes the club look silly. I thought it was an April Fools joke."
But Mr Al Fayed said: "If some stupid fans don’t understand and appreciate such a gift this guy gave to the world they can go to hell."
