Malmo head coach Age Hareide: "We need to be less impressed"

Malmo head coach Age Hareide concedes that his team are too awestruck when they play in the Champions League.

Age Hareide has told his Malmo players that they "need to be less impressed" by their opponents in the Champions League.

The Swedish outfit have faced Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid so far in the group stages, losing 2-0 on both occasions.

However, ahead of their meeting with Shakhtar Donetsk tomorrow night, Hareide has highlighted the importance of his side not being overawed anymore.

"Here in Scandinavia, we tend to get down on our knees when we are up against big teams. We did that against Real Madrid and Paris, much more than we did against Juventus and Atletico Madrid last year," he told reporters.

"We have a lot of young players and I understand that they can get a bit star-struck when they play against players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but it is not good. We need to be less impressed. We need to learn how to handle them."

Malmo have won just one of their eight Champions League group matches.
