South Africa unlikely to host African Nations Cup should Morocco bow out

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has questioned whether or not the African Cup of Nations should take place this February, while Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has taken special precautions with his African players.

JOHANNESBURG -- South Africa is reluctant to step in as a last-minute host for next year's African Nations Cup, citing fears over Ebola and the unplanned cost of holding the event.

Munir El Haddadi Spain call-up not to prevent him from playing for Morocco

France had all the chances of the match and recorded a deserved 1-0 victory over Spain in Paris through substitute, Loic Remy's second-half strike.

Vicente del Bosque says Munir El Haddadi was called up to the Spain squad as he was the logical choice, not because the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) want to secure the player's international future ahead of Morocco.

Medhi Benatia's Bayern bow good for Morocco and Africa

Roma defender Medhi Benatia is set for a move to Bayern Munich as Bayern look to replace injured Javi Martinez.

Among the moves from Africa are some small but important ones, such as highly rated Ethiopian striker Saladin Said's from Wadi Degla to Egyptian giants Al-Ahly. Others cover less ground and may have less of an impact, like Mubarak Wakaso, the Ghanaian who has gone from Rubin Kazan to Celtic.
