The 53-year-old former midfielder won the Bundesliga championship, the Cup Winners’ Cup, and the German Cup all while playing for Werder Bremen during his playing career.




However, he is also known for making news for controversial reasons after being taken to court for brandishing a samurai sword and frightening a group of teenagers, causing one of them to get an injury.

In addition, he was involved in a fight that sent a man to the hospital, and he was terminated from his position with Stuttgart Football Club for his racist behavior toward a teammate.

Legat also played for his native club Bochum, as well as Eintracht Frankfurt and Schalke, and he made a total of 243 appearances for all three teams.



Legat was scheduled to appear on the RTL TV diving show Turmspringen, but he was forced to withdraw after sustaining a painful injury during the show’s rehearsals.
