Esteban Ariel Saveljich (Montenegrin: Естебан Савељић; born 20 May 1991), also known as Esteban Saveljić, is a Montenegrin footballer who plays for Spanish club Albacete Balompié on loan from Levante UD and Montenegro national team as a central defender.
Born in Tandil, Buenos Aires Province, Saveljich joined Racing Club's youth setup in 2006, aged 15. On 23 June 2012 he made his first team – and Primera División – debut, in a 1–2 away loss against Vélez Sársfield.
Saveljich scored his first professional goal on 1 April 2014, in a 3–3 home draw against Estudiantes. He was also a part of the squad which was crowned champions in that year, but as a backup.
In January 2015 Saveljich was loaned to fellow top tier club Defensa y Justicia, until the end of the year. He appeared in 24 matches, scoring once, as his side avoided relegation.
On 24 January 2016 Saveljich moved abroad, signing a six-month loan deal with Segunda División side UD Almería. On 18 August, he signed a permanent four-year deal with fellow league team Levante UD.
On 4 August 2017, after contributing rarely with the Valencians' promotion to La Liga, Saveljich was loaned to Albacete Balompié in the second division, for one year.
Saveljich has obtained Montenegrin nationality in 2015. He was called-up for international matches of Montenegro versus Denmark and Sweden in June 2015, both of which he entered as a substitute player. In EURO 2016 qualifying match against Russia, he was in starting line-up.
Saveljich, a Montenegrin Argentine, is the cousin of former Montenegrin footballer Niša Saveljić. His paternal great-grandfather and grandmother were immigrants from Montenegro.
Saveljich is nicknamed el Polaco by Argentine media, due to his hair colour which is typical for the Slavs. In Montenegro, he is nicknamed Gaucho.Racing Avellaneda
