He played 146 games for Valencia CF, winning two league titles, a UEFA Cup and a European Super Cup
A tribute will be paid to David Navarro, who announced his retirement as a professional footballer last December 22nd at the age of 37, on Sunday at Mestalla at the game against Real Sociedad (6.30pm CET), matchday 25 in LaLiga.
The centre-back born in Puerto de Sagunto made his debut with the first team on September 19th 2001, in a UEFA Cup game against Chernomorets, playing a total of 146 games in a Valencia CF shirt, scoring 9 goals despite being a central defender. In his two spells as a VCF player (from 2001-02 to 2006-07 and from 2009-10 to 2010-11) he won the league title in 2001-02 (playing for the first team and the B team) and 2003-04, as well as the UEFA Cup in 2003-04 and the European Super Cup in 2004-05.
To mark his retirement, Valencia CF wants to recognise his contribution to the club. Before the game, David Navarro will salute the crowd from the Mestalla stands and then, at half-time, the club will present him with a number 17 shirt, which he wore most often in his time as a Valencia player.
