Pinto was born in Porto. After receiving his first football lessons at Sport Lisboa e Benfica, although father João was already playing for neighbours Sporting Clube de Portugal, he soon made the same move and completed his formation at the José Alvalade Stadium.
In 2007–08 Pinto was loaned to C.D. Olivais e Moscavide in the third division, repeating the predicament in the following campaign with top level newcomers C.D. Trofense. In September 2009, he cut ties with Sporting and signed with Sporting de Braga.
