Ravel Morrison, the West Ham United forward, has been remanded in custody until 7 August over the alleged assault of his ex-girlfriend and her mother.
Morrison, 21, charged with two counts of common assault, closed his eyes and puffed his cheeks out after being refused bail at Manchester Magistrates' Court today.
Wearing a white T-shirt and white tracksuit bottoms, the England Under-21 international entered no plea at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court.
Morrison, who spoke only to confirm his name and age, is alleged to have assaulted ex-girlfriend Reah Mansoor, 19, and her mother Parveen Mansoor, 39, in the early hours of Sunday morning.
He was arrested on Wednesday and appeared in court on Thursday.
District Judge James Prowse refused a bail application made by Morrison's solicitor Ros Emsley-Smith just 16 days before the start of the new Premier League season.
West Ham's campaign gets underway with the visit of Tottenham on 16 August.
