Real Madrid and Pablo Laso have decided to separate their paths in a decision that, due to the way it has come about, leaves a blur in a successful relationship between the two. The coach from Vitoria, signed to the Whites’ bench in 2011, closes one of his best periods in the basketball section of the club, without a doubt the best in the modern basket.

Laso arrived as a former player and leaves as a legend of the club, after promoting it and keeping it among the teams to beat in Spain and Europe for more than a decade.

Under his leadership, Real Madrid once again shone in Europe, making him a regular in the Euroleague Final Four (he played seven out of a possible ten) and winning two titles (in 2015 and 2018).

Quite a milestone, especially considering that in the previous fifteen years the team never reached the decisive tournament among the top four of the course.

In Spain, in this period, six leagues (2013, 2015, 2016, 2018, 2019 and 2022), six Copa del Rey (2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2020) and seven Spanish Super Cups (2012, 2013, 2014, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021).

With these numbers Pablo Laso has become the second coach with the most titles in Real Madrid basketball, 22, tied with Lolo Sainz, and close to another legend such as Pedro Ferrándiz, who accumulated 27.

The man from Vitoria will also remain the coach who has won the most games on the Madrid bench.
