Erik Anders Hamrén (born 27 June 1957 in Ljusdal, Sweden) is a Swedish former football player. As a coach, he has managed the Swedish national football team.

Playing career[edit]

Hamrén played in local team Ljusdal IF before starting his coaching career.

Coaching career[edit]

Hamrén coached Norwegian team Rosenborg BK to league championship in his first full season with the club. His previous job was as manager of the Danish Superliga side Aalborg BK, where he guided the team to a 5th-place finish in the 2005–06 season, a 3rd place in the 2006–07 season, and to the championship in the 2007–08 season.

Following heavy speculation in Swedish and Norwegian media, it was confirmed on 4 November 2009 that Hamrén would assume part-time responsibility of the Swedish national football team while also managing Rosenborg, until Rosenborg would relieve him from his contract on 1 September 2010.[1] From that point, Hamrén would assume full-time responsibilities for the Swedish team.[1][2] After heavy discussions with RBK (Erik Hoftun, Terje Svendsen, Nils Skutle, Lars Aune), Hamren eventually was confirmed as manager for the Swedish national team.

On 16 October 2012, he presided over a game where the national team finished with a 4–4 draw from 4–0 down in Berlin against Germany in 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification – UEFA Group C.[3][4] Hamrén qualified Sweden for Euro 2012 and Euro 2016, before stepping down as the manager of Sweden. Currently, he is taking a break from football, and he does not know, whether he will return again.
