LONDON (AP) - The statue of Michael Jackson outside Premier League club Fulham has been hauled down.

On the orders of new owner Shad Khan, the tribute to the late ``King of Pop'' was removed Wednesday from outside Craven Cottage in west London.

The statue is being returned to Mohammed Al Fayed, a friend of Jackson's who sold Fulham to Khan in July.

Khan also owns the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars. He says ``our supporters' views on the statue have been made clear.'' He adds that ``the removal of the statue is the right thing for Fulham.''

Jackson died after a lethal overdose of anesthetic in 2009.
