Fulham might have got a lot of stick for their Michael Jackson statue but don't let that get in the way of a good business idea.

Fulham owner Mohamed Al Fayed, a close friend of the late performer, caused controversy earlier this year after announcing he had decided to place the tribute to Jackson outside the Cottagers' stadium.

Some fans were upset with the move but Al Fayed responded by saying: "Football fans love it. If some stupid fans don't understand and appreciate such a gift they can go to hell.

"I don't want them to be fans. If they don't understand and don't believe in things I believe in they can go to Chelsea, they can go to anywhere else."

The statue though has now reached cult status with away fans at Craven Cottage often referencing it in playful chants.

Now the Premier League outfit have seen the potential to cash in and have released a collection of Jacko memorabilia which is now on sale at their online club shop under the name - "Michael at the Cottage - Tribute Collection."

Fans can pick up everything from Jacko t-shirts to mugs to umbrellas and key-rings.
One t-shirt even has a picture of Al-Fayed with the King of Pop - with Jackson's famous tilted trilby hanging over the crest.

Have a look at some of the items available below - and pop over to the Fulham shop if you fancy picking up anything.
