Rosenborg Wanted 10 Million Kronor
After the Swedish Football Association’s failed efforts to hire Erik Hamrén as the country’s next team manager, media reports are revealing what actually led to the failure. According Norwegian tabloid Verdens Gang, Hamrén current team Rosenborg demanded 10 million Swedish kronor ($US 1.3 million) in compensation from the Swedish Football Association.
But the Swedes were only willing to pay 3 million kronor ($US 400,000) which consequently led to the breakdown of negotiations. The Association will now have to continue its search for a successor to Lars Lagerbäck who retired two weeks ago after Sweden failed to qualify for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
