"I quit my job for family reasons. I couldn't continue with the national team. I'm sorry to leave Iran football team. Every coach dreams of sitting on the bench at the World Cup but at the moment I'd rather be with my children than the national team," Namazi said.
Last week, Antonio Simoes also parted company with Iran football team due to personal problems.
