Arsenal whizkid Olsson admits disappointment at loan spell, says he will dig in

Kristoffer Olsson

Arsenal youngster Kristoffer Olsson has not got going yet in Denmark.

Arsenal prospect Kristoffer Olsson had a memorable moment last month, netting a hat-trick for Sweden's under-21 side.

They face a crucial play-off to qualify for next year's European Championships against France.

It is a welcome relief from a disappointing campaign for the attacking midfielder, who has been unable to follow up his international form at club level.

Loaned out to Danish side FC Midtjylland on deadline day, the 19-year-old has played only 13 minutes of first team football.

Speaking to the press in Sweden, he admitted his frustration at how he remains waiting for a real chance.

He said: "I've been training hard but not received more playing time and the last two games I have not even been in the squad.

"I came here to play and not to be out of the squad or on the bench.

"I think I've done it all right in training, maybe I could have done better in reserve team matches. But you can not dig yourself over it. I'm have my head high and I do what I can. I will get the chance and take it, I just have to continue."

Olsson does not want to have a wasted season in his tough battle to earn a call-up to the Arsenal side. The Swede must take his valuable minutes for the national under-21 side, to further show his club what they are failing to utilise fully and hope for better luck when he returns.
