Juan Alberto Sabia (born 17 December 1981) is an Argentine football defender who plays for Argentinos Juniors in the Primera B Nacional.


Sabia started his professional career in 2000 playing for Ben Hur in the Torneo Argentino A. In 2005, he won the Torneo Argentino A with the club and therefore won promotion to the Primera B Nacional (second division). The defender played one season with Ben Hur in the Primera B Nacional and then joined Gimnasia y Esgrima de Jujuy in the Argentine Primera División, in 2006. After one season with Gimnasia, Sabia joined Argentinos Juniors in 2007.

Sabia quickly established himself as a regular starter for Argentinos Juniors and in 2010 helped the team obtain the 2010 Clausura championship, the club's first top-flight honour in 25 years. The defender played in 14 of the club's 19 games during their championship winning campaign,[1] scoring one goal in the penultimate fixture win against Independiente.

In 2013, Sabia joined Vélez Sársfield on a free transfer, signing for a year and a half.[2]
