Russian footballers Aleksandr Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev are in a party mood despite a devastating loss at Euro 2016. They reportedly spent €250,000 on champagne at a Monte Carlo nightclub, with the booze served to the strains of Russia’s national anthem.
Mamaev’s club FC Krasnodar has already issued a statement, calling its player’s behavior “outrageous and unacceptable.”
“Currently, footballer Pavel Mamaev is moved to the youth team of FC Krasnodar,” the statement read, adding that Mamaev will also be fined.
Videos and photos of the athletes, partying hard at the posh Monte Carlo’s Twiga nightclub, were posted on Instagram and other social media.
According to Life.ru, Kokorin and Mamaev have bought around 500 bottles of Armand de Brignac champagne as a gift for all the guest of the club.
A single bottle of this sparkling vine cost around €500 (US$557), meaning that the players left over €250,000 at the club, the tabloid reports.
The champagne was served to the strains of Russia’s national anthem, decorated with sparklers and golden confetti flying through the air.

The Russian national team members also smoked hookahs and were surrounded by girls, the website wrote.
“At first, they [Kokorin and Mamaev] were acting quietly and modestly. But then champagne was served to the Russian national anthem. Confetti was thrown and sparklers lit. The players were treating everybody at the club. Some just took the bottles from the table as they were in countless numbers,” one of the guests at the party told Life.ru.
