Ni?a Savelji? (Cyrillic ?; born 27 March 1970) is a Montenegrin former professional footballer who played as a defender.

At international level, Savelji? represented FR Yugoslavia in one World Cup and one European Championship.

Club career

Born in Titograd, Savelji? made his senior debut with Budu?nost in the 1988-89 campaign. He spent the following four seasons at the club, before surprisingly moving to Hajduk Kula in the summer of 1993. However, after notable performances with the club, Savelji? secured a transfer to Partizan in the 1995 winter transfer window. He won back-to-back championship titles in 1996 and 1997.

In the summer of 1997, Savelji? moved to France and signed with Bordeaux. He won the league title in his second season at the club. Afterwards, Savelji? spent another two years with Bordeaux, while also being loaned to his former club Partizan in the 2001 winter transfer window.[1] He helped them win the 2000-01 FR Yugoslavia Cup, before returning to France. In the following four years, Savelji? went on to play for Sochaux, Bastia, Guingamp and Istres.

In July 2005, Savelji? made another return to Partizan, signing a two-year deal.[2][3] He was suspended in May 2006 for confronting with his teammate Danko Lazovi? after a training session.[4][5] Eventually, Savelji? left the club by mutual agreement in August 2006.[6]

International career

Savelji? made his debut for FR Yugoslavia in a 3-1 win over Hong Kong on 31 January 1995. He earned 32 caps and scored one goal for the national team, having represented the country at the 1998 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2000. His final international was a June 2000 European Championship match against the Netherlands.[7]

Post-playing career

In August 2017, Savelji? was appointed CEO of the newly founded Girondins de Bordeaux USA, as a result of a partnership between Bordeaux and Washington, D.C.-based club Olney Girls 99.[8]

Personal life

Savelji? also holds French citizenship.[9] He is the father of Nicolas Savelji?, a water polo player, and the cousin of Esteban Saveljich, a Montenegrin international footballer.[10]
