Born in Málaga, Andalusia, Pineda started playing professionally at La Liga giants Real Madrid. He appeared relatively for the capital club during his five-year spell but, following the signing of Argentine Jorge Valdano and the emergence of youth product Emilio Butragueño, was deemed surplus to requirements – the team also did not win one single national championship in that timeframe – leaving in the 1985 summer.
Pineda subsequently signed for Real Zaragoza, winning the Copa del Rey in his debut season while adding seven goals in the league for the fourth-placed side. From 1988 onwards, however, he suffered greatly with injuries, hardly getting a game at the Aragonese and his following club, hometown's CD Málaga; he retired at the age of 31, immediately after his team's top flight relegation.
