After a number of close calls in recent seasons, this current Cup campaign will be Muller's last chance to win it with the province - but he has told UTV he isn't driven by personal achievement.

"At the end of the day it's not about me," Muller said ahead of Saturday's quarter final clash.

"Of course I want to win, of course every single guy on the field on Saturday wants to win, 43 players want to win that game and every guy wants it the same but it doesn't come down to that.

"It's not about me it's about the team, this organisation and what we achieve as a club.

"We have had four years of playing quarter finals, semi-finals and finals and we haven't achieved what we want to achieve but rugby is a funny game and you never know what's going to happen."

Muller said Ulster have learnt from the disappointment of defeat to Saracens a year ago.

"We got taught a rugby lesson 12 months ago on the day by an outstanding Saracens side that really played well and we didn't deserve to win that game," he explained.

"But a year is a long time in rugby and we're excited for what can happen on Saturday."

The game will be played in front of thousands of fans in the newly-revamped Ravenhill and Muller is hoping there will be a special atmosphere as Ulster bid for Heineken cup glory.

He said: "It's everything we have dreamt of, the new stadium, 18,000 people, playing at Ravenhill against a wonderful side - it doesn't get any better than that so it's a massive week for us and really exciting to be a part of."
