Barcelona Lassa announced that they will retire Juan Carlos Navarro’s jersey on March 1 before the start of Round 24 EuroLeague game against Real Madrid.
The initial date to ‘hang the 11’ from the top of Palau Blaugrana was the 25th of November before the El Clasico on Day 10 of Spanish League but it was postponed due to Navarro’s father passing away.
“La Bomba” will become the fifth Barcelona player whose jersey was retired by the club. Juan Antonio San Epifanio, Nacho Solozabal, Andres Jimenez and Roberto Duenas also have their Barcelona jerseys hanged from the rafters of Palau.
