Navarro wants Copa del Rey swansong

Levante defender David Navarro insists he would like to win the Copa del Rey with the club before he eventually hangs up his boots.

The 33-year-old former Valencia player, who won two La Liga titles, a UEFA Cup and a European Super Cup in his time with Los Che, has had his contract at the Ciutat de Valencia extended until June 2014.

However, he told a Press conference that he is still as ambitious as ever despite approaching the twilight of his career.

“To continue growing this club must be playing in La Primera but we must be realistic and realise our objective is to remain in the division.

“Even so, I’d like to win the Copa del Rey. It’s a trophy I haven’t won,” said Navarro, who also revealed he would like to end see out his playing days with Los Granotes.

“I now think I want to finish my playing career here and I also want to do some great things with this club, where I am very happy. It is like my family.

“My first choice was always to remain at Levante. I’d always heard from afar that it was a family and you do have some doubts, but when you arrive here you feel just like one of them,” maintained Navarro.

“Levante is a very serious club and will continue to grow. It has a great project and you value those things,” he concluded.
