In an interview with Real Madrid's media department, Laso said, "I’m very happy to have been at the club for so many years, everyone knows what it means to defend this badge. Real Madrid is my home, we have new challenges ahead and I hope to enjoy things with this team for many more years. I don’t like to compare myself with Pedro Ferrándiz or Lolo Sainz. They are two references who are well above me and what they mean or have meant for me is the growth of this club in the basketball section. We have to thank them very much that today there is this team and that it is recognizable worldwide".
