The GM of Barcelona, Nacho Rodriguez, revealed the details of the 10-year contract that Juan Carlos Navarro signed with the Catalans in 2017.
Here is what the Spanish executive said, during the presentation of the “Blaugrana’s” new signings:
On Navarro’s 10-year contract: “He would spend one year as a player and nine as a coach and member of the coaching staff. The truth is that we could extend his contract and let him play for another season, yet he had signed a contract for 1+9 years.”
On his role in the club: “I believe he can be more helpful off the court, since he has been a member of the club for the past 20 years.”
