Pablo Laso returns to Real Madrid facilities

Jeremy Philippe

Real Madrid head coach, who was not supposed to comeback this season, might make his return during the ACB playoffs finals against Barcelona.

Earlier this month, Pablo Laso and underwent a cardiac catheterization (a thin plastic tube in his heart). He was supposed to be held out from basketball for a long time. Real Madrid head coach came back in practice before the beginning of the series against Barcelona.

Hello everyone.
Thanks for the thousands of messages you have sent me.
Impossible to answer all of you, millions of thanks.
I feel good, already training, although today I will not be present at the Palau.

He will be replaced by Chus Mateo, his assistant, who already took the lead of the team while Pablo Laso was tested positive for Covid-19 mid-December. Real Madrid are currently up 2-0 in the ACB playoffs against Baskonia in the semifinal. Third game, on Tuesday.

During his recovery, his assistant, Chus Mateo coached Real Madrid against Baskonia. It went quite well as they swept their opponent. He talked about a potential comeback of Pablo Laso during this series.

“I am not able to tell you for sure if I’ll be coaching through the entire series. Pablo is fine, regardless of whether or not he is for a game, he will continue being with us.”
