(LONDON) -- English soccer club, Fulham, defeated fellow Premier League club Blackpool on Sunday, but Fulham found itself making headlines for another reason, one that has nothing to do with soccer, and everything to do with the "King of Pop."
On Sunday, Fulham’s chairman Mohammed Al-Fayed unveiled a statue of the late Michael Jackson outside the club’s Craven Cottage home stadium in London. Al-Fayed unveiled the statue of his close friend in a ceremony held before the game against Blackpool, to the delight of some fans, and to the disapproval of some others.
Al-Fayed had some strong words for those against the statue, saying those who didn’t appreciate it could “go to hell.”
