The controversial statue which stood behind the Hammersmith stand
was unveiled in 2011 by former owner Mohamed Al Fayed
did not go down well with the supporters and had in many occasions called for its removal.
According to the former owner, he built the statue to honour a friend whom he shared many happy memories with, Michael’s legendary status and a fan of the club he claims.
Prior to the removal, spokesperson from the West London
club said “The statue is not part of the Riverside
development of the stadium and will be returned to the former chairman in due course.”
It was taken off today [Wednesday, September 25] and the new owner of the club Shahid Khan
is contempt with the situation now.
He however admitted that “We’ve had enough” hence the necessity for getting rid of it.
Supporters of the club also took to social media to express how happy they are after it was pulled off.
The statue will be returned to the former club owner Mohammed Al Fayed.
