July 4th. National holiday of the United States and usual day of fires in the basketball section of Real Madrid. This Monday, MARCA has advanced the dismissal of Pablo Laso as a coach after 11 seasons in office and give to club 22 titles. are also met 20 years since the dismissal of Sergio Scariolo as a technician. And in both, shapes mattered.
In the case of Laso, his departure comes after a heart problem which forced him to undergo a catheterization. From Madrid they argue that they are very concerned about your health and recommend that you rest until fully recovered. The coach considers that he is ready to train and that he can take charge of the equipment at the beginning of the course. The disagreement with history of bad relationship with the head of the sectionends up in dismissal with the health reasons as background. Ugly.
20 years ago, Scariolo told Alberto Herreros that he did not count on him. he did it in the gym. In the club they considered that they were not ways to treat a Real Madrid basketball institution and the pillar of the team during the previous stage. Florentino Pérez, then president, decided to fire the Italian coachwho had previously been removed from the direction of the section. The player continued in the team and even won the 2005 League with an unforgettable triple before retiring.
July 4th. Caprices of destiny and calendar. Bad ways of doing things in 2002. Bad ways of doing things in 2022. Same president. Different consequences.
