Football careerEdit

Born in Valencia, Navarro joined hometown Valencia CF's youth ranks in early 2005, then spent the following years with the reserves, helping them promote back to the third division in his first season. He started his career as a right back.

Navarro made his first-team debut in late 2008, appearing in both legs against lowly Club Portugalete in the Copa del Rey's round-of-32, a 7–1 aggregate win.[1][2] For the 2009–10 campaign, he was loaned by coach Unai Emery to neighbouring Elche CF in the second level.[3]

After leaving the Mestalla Stadium on 30 June 2011, Navarro resumed his career in the Superleague Greece, where he represented a host of clubs. On 4 January 2018, Athlitiki Enosi Larissa F.C. released the 29-year-old.[4]
