FC Barcelona goalkeeper José Pinto has agreed to prolong his stay at Camp Nou until June 2013 after signing a one-year contract extension.
Pinto has been understudy to Víctor Valdés since arriving from RC Celta de Vigo in January 2008 but has impressed when deputising for the No1 in the UEFA Champions League and Copa del Rey this season. The 36-year-old kept a clean sheet in the final Group H game against FC BATE Borisov as Josep Guardiola's charges qualified for the knockout stage as section winners.
Barcelona face Bayer 04 Leverkusen in the round of 16 with the first leg to be played in Germany on 14 Feburary before the return on home soil on 7 March.
