Cape Town - Orlando Pirates head coach Eric Tinkler expressed concern about the performances of fellow Premiership clubs in their respective CAF competitions.

Kaizer Chiefs were knocked out of the CAF Champions League while Wits bowed out of the Confederations Cup at the weekend.

Amakhosi lost 1-0 on aggregate against ASEC Mimosas from Ivory Coast and Wits suffered a heavy 7-3 aggregate loss to Azam from Tanzania.

"Obviously I don't like it because what we don't want to find is a situation where we go back down to one team representing us in the Champions League," Tinkler told KickOff.

"We don't get teams going through at least to group phases and that could happen again. I think it is important that we have our teams representing the PSL ultimately in the continental competition."

Mamelodi Sundowns are the only local club to progress to the second round of the Champions League after a 3-1 aggregate win over Congolese side AC Leopards.
