Official diagnosis

His club, FC Midtjylland, announced the official diagnosis on Thursday.

Olsson sustained an extremely rare inflammatory condition in his brain vessels.

Olsson, 28, lost consciousness at his home last month.

The loss of consciousness left Olsson in an induced coma and was put on a ventilator.

He was admitted to Aarhus University Hospital, where he had undergone several scans and tests in recent weeks.

The Danish club disclosed that Olsson is now in a stable condition.

“The diagnosis matches the thesis on which the medical specialists have so far worked and treated Kristoffer,” the club said in a statement.

“Kristoffer Olsson’s condition is now considered stable, and the doctors continue to see some progress. At the same time, they feel that Kristoffer’s level of consciousness is increasing.”

However, he remains in the intensive care unit.

“In the coming period, the doctors will slowly try to phase the Swedish midfielder out of the ventilator. But he remains in intensive care, and it is not yet possible to say anything about the treatment’s time frame and final prognosis.”

The club clarified that Olsson’s condition was not related to self-harm or external factors.

Former Arsenal standout

Olsson graduated from Arsenal’s youth academy in 2013.

However, he failed to appear in the Premier League side’s senior squad.

The midfielder has 47 caps for Sweden and represented the country at the European Championship in 2021.
