After performing cardiac catheterization the coach spent the night at the hospital under observation. Even though there is no danger to his life, Laso is set for a lengthy come back to a normal life.

Marca reports that there will be numerous tests done to find out the root cause of the event and the extent of the illness. Following the news, Laso's return to the club this season is highly unlikely if not impossible.

Once the coach leaves the hospital, he will have to restrict his daily life - it is usually recommended not to drive for between one and three months and rest. Laso will most likely have to follow a strict diet, use specified drugs, and moderately increase physical exercise little by little.

Laso will be replaced by his assistant coach Chus Mateo. Mateo already has some experience replacing his colleague as Laso had a coronavirus infection during the month of December this year and was unable to coach the team.
