The Michael Jackson statue that stands at Fulham’s Craven Cottage stadium in west London is to be removed.

“The statue is not part of the Riverside development of the stadium and will be returned to the former chairman in due course,” said a Fulham spokesperson.

The statue was erected in 2011 by the wishes of former Fulham owner Mohamed Al Fayed. The Egyptian was best friends with Jackson, and Al Fayed insisted that the singer was a Fulham supporter.

The Michael Jackson statue is situated near the back of the Hammersmith Stand.

Al Fayed wants to take the statue to another one of his properties, according to The Independent newspaper.

    I strangely want this to remain at Fulham.. I’ve seen it.. It’s odd, but it’s part of football folklore now. I hope it remains.

    Many people around the world have made the pilgrimage to Craven Cottage to see this monument………………not.

    Joe P’s statue at Penn State has been torn down. FFC must think differently about child molesters.

    Honestly? That thing was an utter embarrassment. Go shove it in an adjunct escalator area in Harrods or something.

    And get a decent crest, Fulham. That one is the worst in the PL.
