Rosenborg’s Erik Hamren in running to coach Sweden
The Swedish Football Association says Rosenborg coach Erik Hamren is one of several candidates to take over the national team.
FA chairman Lars-Ake Lagrell told The Associated Press he held talks with Hamren on Monday in Trondheim, Norway.
Lagrell said a handful of candidates remain in the running but declined to reveal the others.
Hamren, a Swede, has been coaching Rosenborg since 2008 after helping Aalborg win the Danish league. He has also coachedAIK, Degerfors and Orgryte.
Former England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson Eriksson ruled himself out last week because of his contract with English fourth-tier side Notts County.
Lars Lagerback stepped down as Sweden coach after the team failed to reach next year’s World Cup.
