Olsen suffers brain haemorrhage
Former Man Utd star Jesper Olsen
Olsen was a big hit at Old Trafford
Former Manchester United star Jesper Olsen is recovering in a Melbourne hospital after collapsing with a brain haemorrhage.

Olsen's company said he was admitted to hospital after a sub-arachnoid haemorrhage last Thursday.

His business partner John Grimaud said the former Denmark international had not undergone surgery.

Olsen joined Manchester United in 1984, and scored 24 goals during a five-year spell at Old Trafford.

United paid Ajax 350,000 for Olsen in June 1984, and he helped the Old Trafford club to lift the FA Cup in 1985.

He was sold to Bordeaux for 400,000 in 1988.

Olsen settled in Australia in 2003 with his wife and four children, where he heads Proactive Management's Australian division, in addition to running a grass-roots training programme for young footballers.
