Former Premier League football star rushed to hospital and put on ventilator

FORMER Arsenal star Kristoffer Olsson has been urgently admitted to the hospital after losing consciousness at home. He has been placed on a ventilator due to an “acute disease related to the brain.”

Olsson was with Arsenal from 2011 to 2014 and made a solitary senior appearance for the club in the League Cup.

He came on as a substitute against West Brom and scored a spot-kick as the Gunners won on penalties.

The 28-year-old midfielder has earned 47 caps for Sweden and is currently with Danish side Midtjylland.

A statement from his club said: “The player lost consciousness at his home on Tuesday 20 February and was transferred to Aarhus University Hospital, where he is hospitalised and on a ventilator.”
