2012/13 Dutch Eredivisie
The famed La Masia academy put another feather in its cap when Cuenca made his debut in the 2011-12 season, having been playing in the Spanish Third Division only six months previous.
Joining the club aged 12, he had problems and returned home to join local CF Reus Deportiu before deciding that his future lay at the Nou Camp in 2009. He made a loan move to CE Sabadell FC, where he played 24 times and helped them gain promotion, before cementing his place in Barcelona's B team.
Impressing, Pep Guardiola allowed him to be a part of the senior squad's pre-season and he made his debut in July against HNK Hajduk Split. Despite the array of talent on offer at Barcelona, Cuenca continued to get a chance due to injuries and proved that he could be an important player for the club for years to come.
Strengths: With excellent dribbling skills, he is a danger with the ball at his feet and also has a good football brain in that he can see things develop and play a killer pass.
Weaknesses: The defensive side of his game needs work and he has little impact in the air.
Career high: Setting up three goals as Barcelona beat BATE 4-0 in the Champions League.
Career low: His early years in La Masia did not pan out as expected and he could have packed it all in before he was 16.
Style: Clever, fast, tricky, a traditional winger with excellent movement.
Quotes: "Physically speaking he might not be popular with the ladies, but on the field he does things that will amaze you. He does his work perfectly!" Pep Guardiola on Cuenca, 2011.
Trivia: Cuenca had a brief spell at RCD Espanyol before being brought into La Masia.
