Cesc reveals Barcelona coach Vilanova has new role for him

Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas admits his form wasn't good enough last season. Cesc blames mental fatigue for his lapse.

"It was a mental block," he told the club's official website. "Tito has made it clear that I need to play the way I know. I have to be mobile and look for space, help my team-mates by playing the easy ball.

"I've noticed the difference in the first few games of pre-season - how rather than staying static on the inside left, I have to be more mobile.

"These three weeks of pre-season help to make us stronger and we need to fuel ourselves in order to perform better during the season. A good pre-season builds fitness to see you through until the end."
