Fulham owner Khan admits Jacko statue dilemma

Fulham owner Shahid Khan admits the presence of the Michael Jackson statue at Craven Cottage is becoming a dilemma.

Many fans remain embarrassed by the tribute to the King of Pop which was erected by former chairman Mohamed Fayed in 2011.

But Fayed insists the statue will stay as part of the takeover deal with Khan earlier this month - even threatening to shave off the new owner's trademark moustache if he removed it.

Khan said: "You have to take a deep breath and reflect.

"I'm in a Lotus pose and doing my yoga meditation.

"I didn't think it would be that big of a deal to the fans or the chairman."
