Kurt Roland Hamrin (born 19 November 1934 in Stockholm, Sweden) is a former Swedish footballer. He is currently the sixth highest goalscorer of all-time in Italy's Serie A. He was best known for his dribbling and finishing.



Hamrin first played for AIK in Sweden, whom he joined in the 1952-53 season. He then joined Juventus in 1956 and played 23 games during his single season there. After that one season, he joined Padova, where he scored 20 goals in 30 games. He would only stay there for one season again, however, and he then joined Fiorentina in 1958, where stayed until 1967, playing 289 Serie A games and scoring 150 goals. While at Fiorentina, he won the Coppa Italia in 1961 and 1966. He joined A.C. Milan in 1967 and played there for two seasons, winning the league in 1968. He also scored both goals for Milan as they overcame Hamburg 2-0 in the 1968 European Cup Winners' Cup Final. His final Italian club was Napoli, whom he joined from Milan in 1969.

A member of "Exilgnagare" - a club for AIK supporters worldwide, Hamrin is probably one of the finest players the club ever produced and is still a big favourite among the supporters at the club. Hamrin, settled in Florence after his spell at Fiorentina, still follows his beloved AIK and usually makes the trip home every summer to catch a couple of games.

Hamrin played 32 times for Sweden between 1953 and 1965, scoring 17 goals. Most Swedes (and Germans?) remember him best for the goal he scored against West Germany in the semi finals of the World Championships of 1958. The goal meant 3-1 to Sweden, and secured a place in the final against Brazil for Sweden.

After his retirement as a footballer, Hamrin moved to Florence with his family, where he is still living today. He also worked as scout for AC Milan from 1998 to 2008.[1]
