MOSCOW, December 5. /TASS/. Moscow’s Tverskoi Court will on Wednesday decide on extending until February 8 the custody of footballers Kokorin and Mamayev, charged with hooliganism and battery, a court spokesperson told TASS.

The hearings will begin at 11:00 Moscow time.

Earlier, the court ruled to place in custody FC Krasnodar midfielder Pavel Mamaev and FC Zenit striker Alexander Kokorin, as well as Kokorin’s brother Kirill and coach Alexander Protasovitsky, following two brawls in downtown Moscow.

The first incident took place at around 8:30 a.m. Moscow time, when they allegedly attacked a driver of a Mercedes near the Peking Hotel in Moscow.

They beat the man up, in addition to breaking one of the vehicle’s windows and damaging one of the car’s doors. After that, the gang, which also included Kokorin’s brother Kirill, stopped in at a cafe on Bolshaya Nikitskaya Street in downtown Moscow, where they proceeded to beat up a director of one of the Russian trade ministry’s departments, Denis Pak.

The Moscow police detained the footballers on charges of battery and hooliganism. Moscow’s Tverskoy District Court ruled later in October to place them in pretrial custody for two months, until December 8.
