This Wednesday at noon in the offices of the Club, Jose Manuel Pinto signed the renewal agreement to continue for another season with FC Barcelona. "I'm very happy because this is where I wanted to be," Pinto said on Barša TV.
The crucial part of the season
Pinto is a team player and his assessment of the end of the season demonstrates it: "We’ll
carry on doing what we have been doing up to now. We’ll give everything, whether it goes
right or wrong, so we must be calm and encourage each other in difficult times. Being together and
united as a team is the only way to achieve everything”.
On Monday club and player announced his renewal until 30th of June 2012. At noon today both parties
made the agreement official with the signing of Jose Manuel Pinto’s new contract.
Pinto signs until 2012
Jose Manuel Pinto came on loan in the winter of 2007 and has just
renewed his contract until June 2012. His desires were fulfilled: "The truth is that since I
arrived it was all very clear to me. I came for 6 months, but my mind was already focused on
carrying on. In this respect nothing has changed. I am happy here and my family too, and when that
happens you can’t ever consider anything but to carry on. "
This season Pinto has already played 12 games with very good performances and this makes him
proud: "I'm happy to prove myself on the pitch, because sometimes what you do to help the team in
training and not in games is not easily seen. I am very happy because I feel valued and I can
contribute both on and off the pitch”.
The ceremony, held at the offices of FC Barcelona, was attended by the goalkeeper along with
his representative, President Sandro Rosell, the Vice-President of Sports, Josep Maria Bartholomew,
and Professional Football Sports Director, Andoni Zubizarreta.
