He started his career with FC Emmenbrücke and then played for FC Luzern and Grasshopper Club Zürich.[3]

In January 1973, he moved to Germany to play club football for Hertha BSC. Müller went on to make 77 league appearances for the Berlin side over the next two and a half seasons, and in 1974–75 he helped Hertha finish as runners-up in the Bundesliga.[1]

After leaving Hertha, he returned to Switzerland to play for Servette FC for the 1975–76 season,[4] and he played for them in the final of the 1975 Coppa delle Alpi tournament, in which they defeated FC Basel 3–0.[5] Müller finished his career with the Bern team BSC Young Boys.[3]

Müller made his international debut for Switzerland on 15 December 1970, in a UEFA Euro 1972 qualifying match against Greece. His final international cap came almost seven years later in a 1978 FIFA World Cup qualification match against Norway on 30 October 1977.[6]

Müller later became manager at FC Luzern, and he was in charge when they reached the final of the Swiss Cup in 1996–97, although they lost on penalties to FC Sion.[7]
