Oscar Muller was a box-to-box midfielder who was born in Argentina, but was naturalised as a French citizen. His professional career began in France with FC Nantes in 1975, where he would spend 9 years, and thus the majority of his career. Son of a former Nantes player, Ramon Muller, he would win three French league titles in 1977;1980 and 1983, as well as the French Cup in 1979. In 1984, his adventure with Nantes ended, having made over 240 appearances, scoring 38 goals in that time. For the 1984/1985 season, he joined Stade Rennais, who were playing in the French Second Division at the time, and were seeking to achieve promotion back to the top flight. He was a regular starter at the heart of the Rennes midfield in his first season, and played a major part in his side's promotion to the First Division. The lively and precise midfielder, nicknamed "Chucho" would have some injury problems in the second season, which prevented him from playing an active part in the team. He left Rennes at the end of that season, in 1986, heading to Picardy to join Amiens, who had just achieved promotion to the Second Division, between 1986 and 1987. However, he would remain injury-prone, and decided to hang up his boots, ending his professional career at the end of that season, whilst continuing to play at a lower level with Angoulême in the Third Division for the 1987/1988 season, before finishing his playing days with Saint Sébastien, in the suburb of Nantes between 1988 and January 1990. After his playing days were over, he moved to start a new life on La Réunion, where he owned a sports shop. On 19th August 2005, he died in a tragic car accident.
