Sweden Midfielder Olsson Hospitalised Due To Brain Condition

The 28-year-old who plays for Danish side FC Midtjylland has been placed on a ventilator to aid his recovery.

Midtjylland were forced to put out a statement regarding Olsson's whereabouts after he missed the club's last two matches.

Olsson spent part of his youth development at Arsenal and made one appearances for the senior side in the League Cup in 2013.

Since then he has played for AIK, Krasnodar and Anderlecht and is in his second spell with Midtjylland.

Midtjylland said in a statement on their official website: “In view of the increasing rumours and speculation that are circulating about the reason for Kristoffer Olsson’s absence in the recent period, we are forced to make this announcement to the public.

“The 28-year-old Swedish international lost consciousness in his home on Tuesday 20 February and was transferred to Aarhus University Hospital, where he has been admitted and on a ventilator.

“Kristoffer Olsson is affected by an apparently acute disease related to the brain, which is not caused by self-harm of any kind, nor is the cause due to external factors.

“A team of Denmark’s leading medical experts is currently working hard to make a diagnosis and initiate the right treatment.”

“Everyone at FC Midtjylland is of course deeply affected by Kristoffer’s sudden illness and our thoughts and full support go to Kristoffer and his family.”
