Germany ace Muller punching above weight with glam rider who mocked Bayern boss

Thomas Muller has been a mainstay in the German national team for the past 15 years.

He did spend two years in the wilderness, making his first competitive international game since the 2018 World Cup disaster at Euro 2020. However, Muller, 34, has returned to the fold and kept his spot in time for the Euros on home turf.

And playing at home is sure to delight his wife, Lisa, a semi-pro horse rider known for her fiery defence of her hubby.

Despite the drama, she later said sorry to Kovac, and Muller shrugged off the incident, saying: “It was out of emotion. In retrospect, I don’t think it was super. But she just loves me, what should I do?”

The couple tied the knot in December 2009, and it’s evident that Muller’s wife is as loyal as she is beautiful. Lisa’s Instagram is filled with snapshots of her first love, horse-riding, but Muller isn’t far behind and often features around their stud.

Not only is Lisa a champion dressage rider and horse trainer, but it was also once reported that her business is set to rake in millions from selling horse semen.
