Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller and his wife Lisa, a horse trainer, have been accused of animal cruelty by animal rights group PETA.

The Germany international and his wife have been accused by PETA of “unnatural sex frozen acts” in their sale of horse semen, for which they charge £170 per dose.

The claims came after the Muller’s horse D’Avie – who the family bought in August 2020 – sustained an injury ahead of breeding season with the animal rights group claiming that their practice was unnatural.

Muller regularly attends dressage events in which his wife Lisa competes with their stable housing three horses – including D’Avie alongside Four Roses and Bowmore, whose frozen sperm is also sold.

Yet an injury sustained to D’Avie has now led to accusations that this represents animal cruelty as it is not natural for the horses.

The comments came after Muller revealed news of D’Avie’s injury: “Sadly we have bad news. Our favorite D’Avie will not be available in the next months.

“Unfortunately he slipped during a test attempt to prepare for the breeding season, and fell on his side.

“He suffered an injury in the hoof area, and will need to rest completely for the next few months.

“He’s a tough lad, and it could have been worse.”

That led to PETA spokesperson Jana Hoger speaking out against Muller’s update and accusing him and his wife of engaging in an unnatural act.

“It is awful that self-styled horse lovers force the animals in their care into unnatural sex acts in order to make the maximum profit from them.

“The injuries that D’Avie suffered under Lisa and Thomas Muller’s supervision were avoidable and unnecessary.”

Muller has previously spoken about his love of horses and how he enjoyed spending his free time with them.

He has previously stated: “I come here to watch if everything’s fine.

“And for the carrots. I’m the managing director of carrots! I watch the dogs. Sometimes I help a little bit but it’s her (my wife’s) business.

“I enjoy it a lot. They make me feel comfortable, the attitude and what they look like and (the way they) live their lives.

“It’s fun. It’s easy to relax around horses.”

There is no proof of wrongdoing by Thomas Muller or his wife.

Mirror Football have contacted Bayern Munich for comment on the claims.

Muller is one of the most decorated players currently in football, netting 224 goals across over 600 first-team appearances at Bayern Munich, alongside 42 goals in 110 international caps for Germany.

The 32-year-old has won an incredible 30 trophies throughout his career including 10 Bundesliga crowns and the World Cup with Germany in 2014.
