Sardar Azmoun Parents: Meet Khalil Amoun

Sardar Azmoun is the son of Khalil Amoun. He was born into a Sunni family of Turkmen origin. He speaks Persian, Turkmen, Turkish and Russian fluently.

Azmoun’s father is a former national volleyball team player who has coached several volleyball teams, such as Golgohar Sirjan and Javaheri Gonbad VC.

Azmoun retired from international football at the age of 23 just after Iran’s 2018 World Cup exit due to insults he received from fans, which, he said, had caused his mother’s illness to worsen. Azmoun chose to retire to be by his mother.

Azmoun returned to the team after taking his break.
