Barcelona's Cuenca: Vilanova has said he's counting on me

The young attacker broke into the senior side under Pep Guardiola, but does not fear that he will lose his spot in the team now that a coach change has taken place
Isaac Cuenca is confident that he still has a role to play at Barcelona under new head trainer Tito Vilanova.

The 21-year-old made his first team debut at the Blaugranas under Pep Guardiola last term, and the youngster has been assured that the change of coaches this summer won't affect his situation.

"Every coach is different. They all want a certain kind of player, but Tito has said he’s counting on me, so I'm happy," Cuenca was quoted as saying on the club's official website.

Cuenca is currently recovering from a knee injury that kept him out of the London Olympics, and is determined to return to full match fitness.

"The most important thing is for my knee to get better. I hope to be fit as soon as possible and be able to help the team play some good games."

Cuenca netted twice in 16 La Liga appearances last term for Barcelona.
