Born in Montijo, Setúbal District, Pinto made his senior debut 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 243 matches and 80 goals, but only won one trophy, the 1968 Portuguese Cup.
In the summer of 1971, Pinto signed with Minho club Vitória de Guimarães, where he would play four seasons (always in the top flight). He retired from professional football at 36 after a stint with F.C. Paços de Ferreira, but returned to the Segunda Liga two years later when he signed with Oliveira do Bairro SC.
Pinto earned 13 caps for Portugal, scoring 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.
Pinto's older brother, Manuel, was also an international footballer.
