Eggen chips in to help Rosenborg

Nils Arne Eggen will coach Rosenborg BK for the remainder of Norway's 2010 season after the club allowed Erik Hamrén to take up his role as full-time Sweden coach a few months early.

Nils Arne Eggen, the most successful coach in the history of the Norwegian league, has returned to the Rosenborg BK helm as Erik Hamrén leaves to take up a full-time post with Sweden's national side.

The 68-year-old Eggen has committed to coach the Trondheim team until the end of the 2010 season. Hamrén had planned to stay with Rosenborg until 1 August, but the club preferred to release him early. The 52-year-old, whose work with Sweden started last November, will lead the national side full time from 1 June.

A former Rosenborg defender, Eggen was in charge for all but one of the campaigns between 1992 and 2004 when Rosenborg won 13 straight Norwegian titles. "I am not a caretaker coach," he said. "Who am I holding the fort for?" Rosenborg are second in the Premier Division, three points behind Tromsø IL after 12 matches.
