The Danish recruit has been provisionally suspended by Football Federation Australia under its anti-doping policy.

United have not detailed the nature of the breach, which is under investigation by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority.

A statement by the club advises Ilsø “has been provisionally suspended by Football Federation Australia (FFA) under its National Anti-Doping Policy”.

“Adelaide United fully supports the policies of FFA and the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA),” CEO Nathan Kosmina said in the statement.

“We have and will continue to work proactively with both organisations and provide necessary support to Ken as due process is undertaken.

“As the matter currently sits with FFA and ASADA for investigation, we are not able to comment further. 
 
“Nevertheless, Adelaide United recognises the significance of the matter and wants to ensure our members, fans, and stakeholders that we will treat this with the utmost seriousness and sensitivity.

“We ask that commentary on this situation also shows sensitivity to the issues involved.”
