Khan you dig it? Al Fayed pays lip service, says Michael Jackson statue will stay

Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan has been singing the praises of Mohamed Al Fayed over his successful negotiations to buy Fulham FC. Al Fayed wore a fake moustache when posing with the club’s new owner and a shirt with “Khan” printed on the back.

But AL Fayed didn’t stop there.

When asked about Michael Jackson’s statue outside Craven Cottage, the Egyptian businessman reminded Khan that he would be “in big trouble” should the heavily-moustached owner decide to remove Jackson’s memorial:

"Michael Jackson will stay. He can’t go, he is here. It is part of the deal, it is history, it is listed. You can’t change otherwise I will come and take your moustache in public. He knows that."

The “King of Pop” only visited the ground once in 1999 has divided opinions and Khan promised to get fans’ views rather than make a “knee-jerk reaction.”

"I’ve been an owner less than a day. We have to preserve and respect history – but we have to move forward. I’ll reflect on it and listen to the fans. Then I’ll decide."

Only time will tell.

Talk about a genuine idea, Uncharted Play recently introduced SOCCKET, a “durable energy-harnessing soccer ball” that can be used as an off-grid power source after 30 minutes of play via the ball’s patent pending technology. Sounds too good to be true, right? 

"About one ounce heavier than a standard soccer ball, the SOCCKET is constructed from a custom water-resistant EVA foam that is both durable and soft to the touch. Designed and assembled in the USA, the SOCCKET is currently being piloted in select resource-poor areas of North America and South America."
