German legend Thomas Muller slammed for selling horse semen with his wife

Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller and his wife have been slammed for selling horse semen.

In a week dominated by news of Kurt Zouma shamefully abusing his cat and Chris Kirkland outlandishly comparing it to racism, things have gotten even stranger with former World Cup winner Muller and wife Lisa coming under fire from animal rights organisation PETA.

Muller and Lisa, a champion dressage rider, own a farm and reportedly use the horses as studs, selling frozen horse semen for €200 (£168) a pop.

But PETA have now condemned their practices after Muller revealed recently that one of their horses was injured in the process.

Muller said: "Sadly we have bad news. Our favourite D'Avie will not be available in the next months.

"Unfortunately he slipped during a test attempt to prepare for the breeding season, and dramatically 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."

PETA, however, claim the injuries that occurred were “avoidable” while slamming Muller and his wife for apparently forcing the horse into “unnatural sex acts”.

PETA spokesman Jana Hoger said: "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."

There is no proof that the Bayern Munich man and his wife are actually guilty of any wrongdoing despite the claims.
