Hamrén Hopes to Become Swedish Manager
Despite the breakdown of negotiations between the Swedish Football Association and Norwegian team Rosenborg, their manager Erik Hamrén still hopes to be appointed the next manager of the Swedish national squad. Speaking to the press in Trondheim/Norway, Hamrén said he felt bad about the failure of the negotiations but that he has not given up hope yet.
“It is an honour to lead Rosenburg, the best team in the North”, Hamrén added. But still, he would want to take on the challenge of becoming Swedish team manager. On Friday, Norwegian media reported that the compensation fee that Rosenborg demanded for Hamrén was $US 1.3 million – by far more than the Swedish Football Association was willing to pay.
The Swedish team has been looking for a new manager since Lars Lagerbäck resigned in mid-October after Sweden’s failure to qualify for the World Cup 2010 in South Africa.
