JOHANNESBURG - The President of The Confederation of African Football (CAF), Issa Hayatou, has told the BBC that he has concerns that the 2015 Afcon tournament in Equatorial Guinea will have problems.

The West African nation was asked to host following Morocco's concerns over Ebola.

Hayatou says: "If I say there will be no problems, I would be lying.

"In two months we can't bring together everything that is needed without there being some imperfections."

He also says he has concerns over "catering, accommodation, internal transport, international transport and media".

CAF has also confirmed, through the South African Football Association (Safa), the names of the South African clubs participating in this year's CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup.

Reigning Absa Premiership champions, Mamelodi Sundowns and runners ups, Kaizer Chiefs will play in the CAF Champions League.

Nedbank Cup winners, Orlando Pirates and third place finishers in the ABSA Premiership, Bidvest Wits, will participate in the Confederation Cup.
