Francisco Pineda García (born 31 January 1959 in Málaga, Andalusia) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a forward.

Football career

Pineda started playing professionally at La Liga giants Real Madrid. He appeared relatively for the capital side during his five-year spell but, following the signing of Argentine Jorge Valdano and the emergence of youth product Emilio Butragueño, was deemed surplus to requirements – the club also did not win one single national championship in that timeframe – leaving in the 1985 summer.

Pineda subsequently signed for Real Zaragoza, winning the domestic cup in his debut season while adding seven goals in the league for the fourth-placed team. From 1988 onwards, however, Pineda suffered greatly with injuries, hardly getting a game at the Aragonese and his following club, hometown's CD Málaga; he retired at the age of 31, immediately after the Andalusia side's top flight relegation.
