Laso will renew for two seasons

The white club and the coach from Vitoria have agreed to their sixth renewal. The deal was practically closed in the Cup.


Pablo Laso will continue as Real Madrid coach for the next two seasons, until 2023. Negotiations between both parties picked up speed at the beginning of the year and the agreement was practically made during the Copa del Rey, as reported by AS. This Wednesday, LaSexta confirmed that it had already been closed.

This will be the sixth renewal of the Vitorian, who will reach 12 seasons on the bench of a white team of which it is history: he is the coach with the most games (both in football and basketball) with 737. He surpasses the other two Real legends like Lolo Sainz and Pedro Ferrándiz.

“Reaching a figure like this speaks very well of the work we do. I am very proud to coach this team but I have great professionals by my side. The whole club is pushing for this to happen and I am lucky to be at Real Madrid. The team is the one that is in the day to day but without the fans, managers and everyone pushing this would not be possible ", commented Pablo Laso in

The commitment to Laso has been a success. Add 571 victories and 166 defeats (77.5% success rate). They are 24 wins less than Sainz (595-133 and 6 draws) in 14 seasons (1975-89) and 157 more than Pedro Ferrándiz (414-69 and 7 draws in 490 games) in 13 (1959-62, 64-65 and 66-75), the other two legends of the Madrid bench.

Laso's resume is excellent. Marvelous. Accumulate 20 titles divided into five Leagues, six Cups, six Super Cups, two Euroleague and one Intercontinental. He averages two per season and has raised 10 more trophies than in the 22 seasons prior to his arrival, the period between Sainz and Laso, in which Madrid had a total of 17 different coaches. He is two titles from Sainz (22) and five from Ferrándiz (27), the record man in white history.

The Basque recovered the Cup for the club almost 20 years after the last one and, in addition, against Barça at the Palau Saint Jordi in Barcelona. Also the Euroleague. And twice, 2015 at home, the WiZink Center, after defeating the Greek Olympiacos in the final, and in 2018 in Belgrade against the Turkish Fenerbahçe. The last time that Real had won the top continental competition was in 1995 with Obradovic on the bench and Sabonis and Arlauckas on the court. 20 years. Almost nothing.
