Nuno Miguel Sousa Pinto (born 6 August 1986) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Vitória F.C. as a left back.

Club career[edit]

Born in Vila Nova de Gaia, Porto District, Pinto emerged through local Boavista FC's youth ranks. Whilst under contract, he spent two seasons on loan in the lower leagues, including 2007–08 with C.D. Trofense in the second division, starting in all the games he appeared in and scoring two goals as the club promoted to the Primeira Liga for the first time ever.

In the 2008 summer, Pinto signed for C.D. Nacional, appearing in only seven league matches in his first year (12 overall) with the Madeira side. He was more regularly played in the following campaigns.

On 28 December 2011, Pinto completed a move to PFC Levski Sofia in Bulgaria, for an undisclosed free.[1] From January 2014 to June 2015 he also competed abroad, with SC Tavriya Simferopol (Ukraine) and FC Astra Giurgiu (Romania).

Pinto returned to Portugal on 3 July 2015, signing a two-year deal with Vitória de Setúbal.[2] He scored his second goal in the top flight (first for the club) on 25 August 2017, netting from a free kick in a 1–1 awaw draw against C.F. Os Belenenses.[3]
