Barca gives backup keeper Pinto 1-year extension
Barcelona says it has signed backup goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto
to a one-year contract extension.
The Spanish and European champion did not disclose financial
details but said the deal keeps the Spanish keeper in the team
until the close of the 2012-13 season.
The 36-year-old Pinto has been Barcelona’s first-choice goalie
in the Copa del Rey since joining from Celta Vigo in January
Pinto helped Barcelona win its record 25th domestic cup in 2009
and led the Catalans to the final last year, where it lost to Real
Madrid 1-0 in extra-time.
