Russian footballers Aleksandr Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev are facing criminal charges over an alleged attack on a civil servant in a Moscow cafe and are also being investigated over claims of a separate assault on a driver.

The duo was filmed attacking Pak with a chair in an upscale Moscow café.

Officials say that Zenit St Petersburg striker Alexander Kokorin and Krasnodar midfielder Pavel Mamayev are accused of beating a department head from the Russian Ministry for Industry and Trade who rebuked them for behaving improperly.

The Russian Interior Ministry has also launched an investigation into the incident, which reportedly left Mr Pak requiring hospital treatment, according to Russia Today.

A statement issued on Zenit's official website confirmed Kokorin's involvement and the club will now consider the appropriate disciplinary action.

The Interior Ministry confirmed that an "investigation is now establishing all the circumstances of and participants in the incident". After Russia's disastrous campaign at the 2016 European Championships in France, where both players were in the squad, they allegedly splashed out nearly $300,000 on a lavish champagne party in a Monaco nightclub.

"We are now considering what punishment the club will take against the player and action will be forthcoming in the near future".

Following the café incident, Krasnodar confirmed they are exploring the possibility of ending Mamev's contract.

"What we saw on the video is outrageous". The club said it will "do everything" it can to tear up his contract. "The first thing we can do is apply all possible sanctions specified in the contract". We will give the player the maximum fine and remove him from first team training sessions.

"We are now looking into how to terminate a contract with the player", FC Krasnodar said.

"Unfortunately, contracts are drawn up in such a way that they protect professional athletes as much as possible, but we are doing all we can to get it done". "But we will do everything to achieve this".

The 27-year-old Korokin has 48 caps for Russia's national team, but was not part of the team that made the quarterfinals of this year's World Cup on home soil, missing out through injury. The Russian Football Union has said the pair have "no relationship" with the national team at present.
