Luís Antônio Corréa da Costa, nicknamed Müller, (born January 31, 1966, in Campo Grande) is a former association footballer. He played in an "old fashioned" left sided forward position (even though he is best with right foot, which is uncommon for left sided positions) with São Paulo, the Brazilian national team and Cruzeiro. His position was that of making passes, serving and assisting, but he would also work as a striker in almost every game, mostly in counter-attacks, or moving from the left side.

He was in 56 games with the Brazilian national team, from 1986 against Germany to 1998 against Yugoslavia. He participated in Football World Cup 1986, 1990 and was in the winning team of 1994.[1]

Mike Walker once called a press conference to announce the signing of Müller for Everton, only for him to walk out on the club 30 minutes prior upon discovering he had to pay tax on his £20,000 per week wages, and would not be receiving a free house or car.

He is one of São Paulo's all-time leading scorers with 158 goals. With the club he won the Intercontinental Cup in 1993 as he scored the third goal against AC Milan in Tokyo. He retired as a footballer to become a Pastor, around 2004. He is the brother of another footballer, Cocada.
