Luís Carlos Correia Pinto (born 5 May 1985), commonly known as Luisinho, is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Deportivo de La Coruña as a left back.

Club career[edit]

Born in Porto, Luisinho made his senior debuts with lowly SC Vila Real in 2004. In the 2005 summer he joined S.C. Braga, being assigned to the reserves and subsequently serving loans at Moreirense FC[1] and Rio Ave FC.[2]

In January 2008 Luisinho joined Moreirense on a permanent basis, moving to C.D. Aves in the Liga de Honra after one and a half seasons.[3] He played his first match as a professional on 16 August, starting in a 0–0 away draw against S.C. Freamunde.

In June 2011, Luisinho signed with F.C. Paços de Ferreira. He appeared in 28 matches during his only season at the Castores, being also reconverted in a left back in the process.[4]

On 31 May 2012 Luisinho joined S.L. Benfica, along with teammate Michel.[5] On 13 August of the following year, after being sparingly used by the Reds, he moved abroad for the first time in his career, signing for Deportivo de La Coruña.[6]

On 2 April 2014 Luisinho slapped teammate Juan Carlos Real in the face, after both argued during a training session.[7]
