Born in Montijo, Setúbal District, Pinto made his professional debuts with FC Porto, first appearing in the Primeira Liga at the age of 19. During his ten-year spell with the northerners he amassed league totals of 242 games and 79 goals, but only won one trophy, the 1968 Portuguese Cup.
In the 1971 summer Pinto signed with Minho club Vitória de Guimarães, where he would play four seasons (always in the top flight) and appear in a further 116 matches scoring 28 times, retiring from professional football at 36 after a stint with F.C. Paços de Ferreira.
Pinto gained 13 caps for Portugal, netting once. He made his debut on 29 April 1964 by coming on as an 80th-minute substitute in a 3–2 friendly win over Switzerland in Zürich, and was selected to the squad that appeared in the 1966 FIFA World Cup, not leaving the bench for the third-placed team.
