Juan Eduardo Esnaider is a retired Argentine footballer, in the striker position. His surname is a Spanish spelling reform of the German Schneider, which means "tailor". Esnaider is of Volga German and Spanish descent.
Esnaider began his footballing career for Ferro Carril Oeste, and made his professional debut in a game against Club Atletico Velez Sarsfield, on September 2, 1990. After only six games for Ferro, he was bought by Real Madrid, and still managed two first team appearances during 199091.
However, he never really settled in the Madrid main side, and moved on loan to Real Zaragoza for 199394 (with the latter having the option to buy at the end of the season). Esnaider quickly developed into one of European football's most in-form strikers and, already property of Zaragoza, helped the Aragonese outfit to the 199495 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, scoring in the final against Arsenal F.C. and being the tournament's best scorer (he also added 16 in the league).
