Born in Aubagne, Bouches-du-Rhône, Pignol spent his entire professional career in Spain, representing SD Compostela (where he made his La Liga debuts, consisting of three games in the 1997–98 season), Pontevedra CF, UD Almería, CD Numancia – was the Soria club's starter throughout the vast majority of the 2004–05 campaign, which again ended in top flight relegation for the player – Real Murcia, Real Zaragoza and UD Las Palmas.
