It’s a puzzle: why did the Fulham Football Club’s owner, Mohamed Al-Fayed (father of Dodi), place this stiff and unnatural statue of the begloved one directly outside the team’s stadium? Jackson is alleged to have attended only one game. In truth, Al-Fayed originally wanted an MJ statue to be outside Harrods, the posh department store he also owns. There’s no word on why he changed the location from a shopping paradise to a sporting one.
