In his country he represented Club Nacional de Football, Defensor Sporting, Central Español and C.A. Rentistas, winning four major titles with Nacional, including the 1988 Libertadores Cup followed by the Intercontinental Cup.
Abroad, Lasarte played four seasons for Deportivo de La Coruña in Spain. In his third year he helped the Galicians return to La Liga, appearing in 35 complete matches in the following season as the side finally avoided relegation; he also acted as team captain in several games.
In the following years he managed several teams, including United Arab Emirates outfit Al Wasl FC in 2002, which he joined with the team in the last position, eventually leading it to fifth. In 2003 he was appointed at Club Atlético River Plate (Montevideo), helping the club promote from the second level in his second season.
Lasarte led his following team, Nacional de Montevideo, to two consecutive national championships. After finishing fifth in the 2006–07 Apertura he did not have his contract renewed by the club, going on to have a very brief spell in Colombia.
After one season with Danubio F.C. in his country, Lasarte returned to the land of his father and signed for Real Sociedad in the second division. In his first season, the team returned to the top flight after an absence of three years. In late August 2010, the manager extended his contract until June 2012.
In 2010–11, Real Sociedad was close to the qualifying positions to the UEFA Europa League late into the first half of the season, but eventually had to wait until the last matchday to be safe from relegation, which eventually happened. On 24 May 2011, however, he was relieved from his duties.
