Initial diagnosis

His club, FC Midtjylland, announced the development.

Midtjylland decided to disclose Olsson’s condition due to the “increasing rumors” about his absence from the team.

Olsson, 30, lost consciousness at his home last week.

The team said he has an “acute disease related to the brain, which is not due to self-harm of any kind, nor is the cause due to external factors.”

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

“Since admission, Kristoffer has been surrounded by his immediate family and parts of FC Midtjylland’s staff, and is being treated by specialists in the field.”

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.

Well-wishes for Olsson

Sweden’s Football Association offered their thoughts and well-wishes to Olsson on social media.

“We’re with you, Koffe,” the federation wrote.

“On Tuesday morning, we received the terrible news that men’s national team player Kristoffer Olsson suffered a sudden illness and is now on a ventilator in hospital.”

“The entire Swedish football family is thinking of you and hopes that you will recover soon. Our thoughts also go to Kristoffer’s loved ones at this difficult time.”
