The Red Devils football is currently on a pink cloud. But the pressure of a world cup is not to be underestimated. Thus it wants the Iranian striker Sardar Azmoun not in action for the national team. The 23-year-old football player stops as international because of insults to his address, that his mother is not well done.

“Some things in life are more important than football,” says the attacker from the Russian Rubin Kazan on Thursday on Twitter. Earlier in the day, he also made a Reza Ghoochannejhad (30), ex-STVV and Standard, already known to stop as international.

Azmoun succeeded with Iran not to qualify for the eighth-finals at the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Russia. With four points from three matches against Morocco, Spain and Portugal, the country was there so near. “We don’t deserve to then as being burned by some bad people,” writes Azmoun. “My mother has just recovered from a serious illness and I was happy. By the hurtful words of people about me is her health, however, again declined.”

“That puts me in a difficult position where I have to make a choice. And I choose my mother,” said Azmoun, who at the age of nineteen made his debut for Iran. He played almost forty competitions in which he more than twenty times and managed to score.
