"Former Fulham FC owner Mohamed Al-Fayed erected a statue of the late Michael Jackson outside his club in 2011. It was met with disdain from fans and was removed by current owner Shahid Khan in 2013. That season the club was relegated, with Al-Fayed claiming it was because of the removal of the statue that brought good luck."
