Navarro will be at FCB for the rest of his career and his two good friends, Marc and Pau Gasol, are glad to hear it. "I am very happy, he's a good friend", said Pau, who played alongside him both at Barça Regal and the Memphis Grizzlies in the NBA. "I am pleased that the club has come to an agreement for him to stay here for as many years as he wants."

Marc: "It is important for him to lead the project"

Marc played with Navarro at Barça Regal from 2003 to 2006, and added: "I'm very happy. It might sound like a cliché, but it's quite true to say that people like him deserve it. It is important for him to lead the project and for him to stay at the club for many years."

Juan Carlos Navarro will sign a new contract with FC Barcelona on Tuesday at 16.30 and will be giving a press conference in the company of President Sandro Rosell.
