Kokorin and Mamayev face two months in jail awaiting trial after arrest

A Moscow court ordered the arrest of Russian soccer internationals Alexander Kokorin and Pavel Mamayev late on Thursday after they were charged over violent attacks in central Moscow.

Zenit St Petersburg forward Kokorin and Krasnodar midfielder Mamayev could face jail and will be held in custody for two months over the attacks captured on CCTV on October 8.

Footage circulated widely by Russian media shows a man being kicked and punched by a group of people and another incident in which two civil servants appeared to be assaulted in a cafe. The two footballers were present at both incidents.

The court also ordered Kokorin's younger brother, Kirill, be held for two months.

The three men have been charged with hooliganism, the court said, which carries a jail term of up to seven years.

Kokorin told the court he repented and apologised to one of the victims, but the court rejected his lawyer's request to release him pending trial, RIA news agency reported.

The soccer players also face possible sanctions from their clubs.

Kokorin has 48 caps for Russia but missed this year's World Cup in his home country with a knee injury. Mamayev has represented the national team 15 times but also was not included on the world cup squad.

  • Hasenhuttl on Cardiff loss: 'It was not the best day of my life'

    Hasenhuttl on Cardiff loss: 'It was not the best day of my life'

    ughs. But the scale of the task ahead was laid bare to the Austrian in a troubling first half.</p><p>Southampton are a heart-in-mouth side, and that's not meant as a compliment.</p><p>Sure, Charlie Austin went close with two half-chances and the unmarked Mario Lemina should have hit the target with a volley, but this was far removed from gegenpressing. </p><p>Hasenhuttl says that his first game in charge of Southampton 'was not the best day of my life'</p><p>Southampton are currently 19th in the Premier League table, and Hasenhuttl has it all to do</p><p>Callum Paterson scored Cardiff's goal, and the resilient Bluebirds hung on for their victory</p><p>Southampton are frail at the back and the front, and on Saturday became the first team not to score against Cardiff since August. The return of Ryan Bertrand and Danny Ings cannot come quickly enough, and new faces will be needed in January.</p><p>Perhaps Hasenhuttl could do worse than look to the opposition dugout for inspiration. Neil Warnock has also built his reputation with unfashionable clubs, and after a fourth home win in five Premier League games, Cardiff are 14th.</p><p>'Every game we have really improved. If we hadn't made so many silly mistakes, especially away from home, we would be a lot higher in the table,' Warnock said.</p><p>Only one team made silly mistakes here, with Cardiff employing a cat and mouse tactic from the off. The visitors dominated early possession, but for all their intricacies, seldom did Southampton turn Cardiff's sturdy defence.</p><p>And with Harry Arter and Aron Gunnarsson patrolling, snapping and organising, Cardiff simply waited for an overplayed pass and broke, usually at speed.  </p><p>Cardiff boss Neil Warnock says he doesn't 'honestly know what I'd do without' Callum Paterson</p><p>On the left, Jan Valery had kittens whenever the excellent Josh Murphy ran near him and Victor Camarasa was a catalyst for chaos in the middle. Only wasteful finishing and Alex McCarthy stopped Cardiff putting the game to bed sooner.</p><p>Some may have wondered why Hasenhuttl named three centre backs on his bench. Then they saw Jannik Vestergaard defend.</p><p>At 6ft 6in, the Dane is the Premier League's tallest outfield player and it was his colossal mistake decided the game, when a poor back pass saw Callum Patterson pounced on his casual error, Vestergaard sprawled ungainly and the Scotland right back struck his fourth of the season.</p><p>Warnock was delirious at the final whistle and rightly so. His side are finding their feet at this level. An imposing defence makes up for speed with guile and physical presence. In Paterson they have a hard-working match-winner. 'I don't honestly know what I'd do without him,' Warnock said.</p><p>Hasenhuttl will at least have a week with his players ahead of Arsenal's visit on Sunday. Asked how his day was, he said: 'It was not the best one of my life.' </p><p> The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline. </p><p>Do you want to automatically post your MailOnline comments to your Facebook Timeline?</p><p>Your comment will be posted to MailOnline as usual.</p><p>Do you want to automatically post your MailOnline comments to your Facebook Timeline?</p><p> We will automatically post your comment and a link to the news story to your Facebook timeline at the same time it is posted on MailOnline.

    Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku says he's a lean mean machine again

    on, Lukaku endured a 12-match drought before scoring on his last two starts against Southampton and Fulham.</p><p>Striker Romelu Lukaku (right) scored as Manchester United thrashed Fulham 4-1 on Saturday</p><p>The 25-year-old has shed the weight by keeping away from the gym, drinking more water, and sticking to a diet of fish and vegetables, while a different training regime has helped to resolve a hamstring problem.</p><p>Having recently dismissed criticism of his physique as 'bull***t', Lukaku was able to laugh about it after helping United to their biggest league win in 13 months.</p><p>'A little bit of muscle, yeah,' he said. 'I had to lose it.</p><p>'I felt great at the World Cup, but here in the Premier League I cannot play with the same amount of muscle as international football.</p><p>'When I came back, I knew straightaway "nah, I cannot play in this style like this".</p><p>'So you just stay out of the gym, drink a lot of water, and eat a lot of veg and fish, and it helps.</p><p>'Also, I had a hamstring injury, which is something that never happens to me.</p><p>'We did a lot of tests to see what the problem was. Just training differently, more prevention in the gym and more speed bursts in training - for me, that's the most essential.</p><p>'After the World Cup, I was a bit tired. You know, I had the same thing in 2014 after the World Cup. When I came back to Everton, I was really in a slump. So, now I think I am at a decent level and ready to go again.'</p><p>United frontman Lukaku, 25, has slimmed down and shown an improvement in form recently</p><p>Lukaku also spoke to manager Jose Mourinho about what was missing in his game after making four of his previous six appearances off the bench.</p><p>'Not enough intensity,' acknowledged Lukaku. 'I played with not enough aggression, I think.</p><p>'Me and the manager had good conversations in the last couple of days, where really he told me what he wanted from me.</p><p>'I know from my side I have to do better. Today I think I played with intensity like everybody else.'</p><p>After the 2-2 draw with Arsenal in midweek, this was another highly energised performance from United, with Lukaku adding to goals from Ashley Young and Juan Mata.</p><p>Lukaku, seen in June, admits he lost a 'little bit of muscle' after bulking up for the World Cup</p><p>A weak Fulham side, described by manager Claudio Ranieri as '11 lambs against 11 wolves' in the first half, briefly rallied when substitute Aboubakar Kamara won and converted a penalty.</p><p>However, any hopes of a comeback were killed off shortly afterwards when Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa was sent off for a second bookable offence.</p><p>The result leaves Fulham rooted to the foot of the table while United move up to sixth - albeit still eight points adrift of the top-four - ahead of their final Champions League group tie in Valencia on Wednesday.</p><p>Mourinho's declaration that Paul Pogba will start what is likely to be a rather meaningless game alongside fringe players like Sergio Romero and Andreas Pereira, hardly felt like a vote of confidence in United's record signing, who was an unused substitute against Fulham.</p><p>Ranieri's side, meanwhile, must raise their game for more winnable fixtures against West Ham, Newcastle, Wolves and Huddersfield this month.</p><p>'We know we have some very decisive games in December,' said Andre Schurrle. 'We need to fight. We need to pick up more points and get more confidence, then you can change the momentum.'</p><p> The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline. </p><p>Do you want to automatically post your MailOnline comments to your Facebook Timeline?</p><p>Your comment will be posted to MailOnline as usual.</p><p>Do you want to automatically post your MailOnline comments to your Facebook Timeline?</p><p> We will automatically post your comment and a link to the news story to your Facebook timeline at the same time it is posted on MailOnline.
