Pen Pic

signed Ivo Pinto from Dinamo Zagreb in January 2016, with Pinto describing himself as an "intense and fast" full back.

Pinto was born in 1990 in Lourosa, and subsequently started his youth career at his local side Lusitânia FC. Showing promise, the right-back earned a move to FC Porto in the Primeira Liga in 2008.

Pinto saw his first team chances limited, moving on loan to Gil Vicente and Vitória Setúbal before playing regularly on-loan at Covilhã, playing more than 20 times for the Segunda Liga side.

Rio Ave snapped up the 21-year-old, but Pinto failed to make an appearance for the top-flight side, instead spending a season on-loan at fellow Primeira Liga side U.D. Leiria.

Despite U.D. Leiria's relegation, impressive performances saw him secure a move to Romanian champions CFR Cluj, becoming a first-team regular as Cluj finished in 9th place.

Title glory was to follow as Pinto joined Dinamo Zagreb, making over 100 appearances over two seasons as he helped The Blues to consecutive Croatian titles in the MAXtv Prva HNL, as well as Croatian Cup and Super Cup successes.

Pinto has already faced English opposition this season, having lined up against Arsenal in September as Dinamo triumphed 2-1 over Arsène Wenger`s side in the Champions League.

The 26-year-old attacking right back has represented Portugal at every youth level, featuring in excess of 30 times, but is yet to win a full international cap.
