Hans-Peter "Hansi" Müller (born 27 July 1957 in Stuttgart) is a former German footballer who played as a midfielder.[1]

Club career[edit]

Müller began his career playing for his hometown side VfB Stuttgart. After the 1982 FIFA World Cup, he moved to Italy to play for F.C. Internazionale Milano for two seasons, and subsequently also spent a season with Como.[2]

In 1985, he moved to Austria to play with FC Swarovski Tirol, where he ended his playing career in 1990.[2][3]

International career[edit]

Müller made his international debut in 1978. While at Stuttgart, Müller took part in UEFA Euro 1980 with West Germany, aged 22, after a brief taste of action at the 1978 FIFA World Cup, where he started all four games. The tournament would prove to be Müller's international peak as they emerged victorious.[2] He had a disappointing 1982 World Cup, and despite playing in the Italian league, he made his 42nd and last appearance for West Germany the following year. In total he scored five international goals.[2][4]

After retirement[edit]

Müller was an official ambassador for the city of Stuttgart for the 2006 FIFA World Cup and Innsbruck at UEFA Euro 2008.[2]
