Mohammed Al-Fayed, owner of Fulham of the English Premiership League, has erected a statue of Michael Jackson at Craven Cottage in London, Fulham's home park.
Jackson was buddies with the owner, and attended one match there in 1999.
That was his complete resume with the team. Nothing else. Didn't own the team. Wasn't any type of benefactor. Nothing.
So, let's build a statue for him. And Al-Fayed's not happy with Fulham fans who are critical of it. Here's the story from The New York Times.
By that logic, shouldn't George Steinbrenner have erected a statue of Richard Nixon in front of Yankee Stadium?
