Lucien Muller-Schmidt (born 3 September 1934) is a former French footballer and manager born in Bischwiller who played as a midfielder.

He was part of France at FIFA World Cup 1966 but did not play any match.


He started out in Alsace, his native region, and then made a name for himself with the Stade de Reims, with whom he was twice crowned French champion. He then moved to Real Madrid, with whom he played in the European Cup final in 1964 and won the league three times. He later moved to FC Barcelona. Although he was touted as the successor to Raymond Kopa, his performances in the blaugrana shirt never matched his club performances. He was nevertheless part of the French team that participated in the 1966 FIFA World Cup. He returned to Reims at the end of his career.

He briefly returned to Barcelona as a coach in the late 1970s, leading the club to the European Cup Winners' Cup Final, before being replaced by Joaquim Rifé. He later on trained AS Monaco, RCD Mallorca and CD Castellón.
