Sweden Coach Erik Hamren To Take Break From Football

Departing Sweden coach Erik Hamren has announced he will take some time out from football before deciding on his future, after his side crashed out of Euro 2016. Hamren managed the Sweden side that were eliminated from Euro 2012 in the first round and, after losing to Italy and Belgium this campaign, the Swedes depart the tournament early once again. 

The 58-year-old revealed before the competition that he would be stepping down from the post, with Jan Andersson his replacement. Speaking of his disappointment at veing knocked out of Euro 2016, Hamren said: “One point in three matches is something I'm obviously not happy with, but we deserved more. I feel strongly about a break. If something turns up that is impossible to say no to it might be different. I've turned down some offers.”

Hamren, who admits it will take time to digest the blow of failing to reach the last 16 said: “I'm going home to Sweden to bury myself for a while. It's going to be tough, I feel that already. I'm going to need some love and understanding from those closest to me, as I'm not going to be too pleasant for a while.
