Gorka Pintado del Molino (born 24 March 1978 in San Sebastián, Guipúzcoa) is a Spanish footballer who currently plays for Swansea City in the Football League Championship, as a striker.

Football career

During his career, Pintado played mostly in the Spanish third level, having an unassuming spell in the second division with CD Leganés (no goals in two years).

On June 6, 2008, at already 30, he signed with Swansea City from Granada CF, for a fee of around 200,000, after netting 18 goals during the season.[1] At the Welsh outfit, Pintado hooked up with compatriots Roberto Martínez (coach), Guillem Bauza, Àngel Rangel, Jordi Gómez and Albert Serrán, and he scored his first league goal for the club during a 3–1 win over Nottingham Forest, at the Liberty Stadium.

Although limited to substitute appearances, Pintado netted his fourth goal of the season in Swansea's 2–2 draw at home to Cardiff City, volleying home for the equaliser.[2] He went on to score three more times, against Derby County, Southampton and Crystal Palace.
