Colombian pro Hanyer Mosquera is seen attacking his girlfriend Hinder Herazo in the lift of a building in north-western Colombia.
It is not known what happened between the pair before the footage begins in the lift.
He first punches her twice in the face, forcing her to fall to the ground.
As she sits on the floor of the lift, Masquera then kicks her several times in the shins.
He added: “It seems that he already had some reprimands within his football club for some acts of indiscipline.”
Mosquera used to star for US outfit Portland Timbers before moving back to his native Colombia where he currently plays for top-division side Rionegro Aguilas.
Through a statement released on Twitter on Tuesday morning, the president of Rionegro Aguilar Paola Salazar said the club condemned any act of violence.
He said the club had a code of conduct and the case would be referred to its disciplinary committee which could impose further sanctions against the player should he be found to have breached the code.
