Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Grossmüller began his footballing career in 1988, at the age of five, as a youth player with his local team, Ombu. He stayed as a player for eight years before moving to Primera División Uruguaya side Danubio where he started his professional career though he only played 36 games in seven years. In 2004, he was sent on loan to Centro Atlético Fénix where he made six appearances in the Segunda División Uruguay before going back to Danubio. During the next two seasons at Danubio, he went on to play 52 league games and netted 13 goals which prompted interest from German side Schalke 04 with whom he signed a four-year contract in 2007. His first goal in the Bundesliga, a free kick against Werder Bremen, went on to be nominated as "Goal of the Month" in German television. On August 31, 2009, he returned to his former club Danubio on loan until June 30, 2010. On July 30, 2010, he was signed by newly promoted Serie A side Lecce. After Lecce were relegated at the end of the 2011–12 season, he returned to Uruguay and joined C.A. Peñarol on August 22, 2012.[2]

International careerEdit

He made his début with Uruguayan national team against Mexico in 2003.
