A GIANT statue of pop singer Michael Jackson will prove a real thriller for fans visiting Fulham’s Craven Cottage ground.
A commemorative statue of the late King of Pop is being erected at the ground by chairman Mohamed Al Fayed, a close friend of Jackson’s.
The Fulham chief originally planned to erect it outside his Harrods store, but following the sale of the shop, he decided it should be situated at his football club’s site instead – where the icon once visited.
Al Fayed said: “Michael Jackson was truly a legend, a term used too often in this modern world saturated in the hyperbole surrounding celebrity.
“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.”
