Horst Ehrmantraut (born 11 December 1955) is a German former professional football defender[2] and manager.

Plastic chair

What is a very well known and characteristic feature of Ehrmantraut, is a plastic chair, from which he followed the matches. Not sitting on the regular bench, but aside near the ground, the legend came up, he is fixing and ruling the players in a mental way form this place. Later he told, that it was only because of a better concentration than on the crowded bench. Because of the promotion to the Bundesliga connected with Ehrmantraut's queer character, the chair became a cult status and was not disposed. Now, it is shown in the official Eintracht Frankfurt Museum in the Commerzbank-Arena (formerly known as 'Waldstadion') behind a vitrine.
