Fulham to unveil Michael Jackson statue

Fulham chairman Mohammed Al Fayed has announced that the club will unveil a statue of Michael Jackson at Craven Cottage on April 3 at 12pm.

Al Fayed, who remained friends with the pop star up until his death in June 2009  said:

Michael Jackson - Set to be immortalised at Craven Cottage

“Michael Jackson was truly a legend, a term used too often in this modern world saturated in the hyperbole surrounding celebrity.”

“He was my friend, a man with whom I shared many happy memories and who died a tragic and untimely death. He left behind a legacy of music so vast it takes one’s breath away; from a precocious talent to an ingenuity and ground breaking modernity that shall never be repeated.

“It shall often be imitated, but it will never be replicated, Michael Jackson was, and shall always remain, one of a kind. I hope that many fans of his will visit the statue at the Cottage from far and wide, and that Fulham fans will appreciate seeing the finest performer in the world, in and amongst them, the finest fans in the world.”

Michael Jackson at Fulham…Who’d have thought it?

    MICHAEL JACKSON was the King of Pop and many of us will love his music forever – but to put his statue outside Fulham’s Craven Cottage. “That’s Bad!” http://wp.me/p14o8R-8g
