Over the course of eight seasons he amassed La Liga totals of 215 games and 18 goals, for Cádiz, Mallorca and Rayo Vallecano. He also played more than 200 matches in Segunda División, in a professional career which lasted 18 years and ended in Scotland.
In the 2000s Calderón started a manager career, working in both countries and with several teams.
Born in Cádiz, Andalusia, Calderón made his senior – and La Liga – debuts with hometown's Cádiz CF, during the 1986–87 season. In 1989 he signed with RCD Mallorca, also in the top division, playing there two years.
Calderón then joined Madrid's Rayo Vallecano, helping the team promote from the second level in his debut campaign, with a career-best nine goals in 36 games. During his spell with the club, he would experience one relegation and another promotion; he finished his career in Spain with UE Lleida, playing four division two seasons as an undisputed starter, and going on to amass totals of 416 matches and 49 goals the two major categories of Spanish football combined.
Aged 33, Calderón moved abroad, playing half a season with Airdrieonians and one 1/2 with Kilmarnock, his debut for the latter being a start against Dunfermline Athletic (2–1 home win) and his first and only goal occurring in a 1–3 away loss against Rangers. In 2002 he stayed in Scotland, wrapping up his playing career at Raith Rovers where he acted as player-coach.
Calderón continued his coaching career in his country, first briefly managing first professional club Cádiz, when he took over in October 2007, with the team being second bottom. He managed to climb the table and were sat in a comfortable midtable position when he was sacked with 10 games to go and 5 points away from the relegation zone. Two more coaches were not finally able to prevent second division relegation. He then signed with SD Huesca, with the Aragonese freshly promoted to precisely that category. With him in charge for the full campaign, the team finished in a comfortable 11th position out of 22.
In the 2009–10 season, Calderón repeated the feat (13th place, although only two points clear of the relegation zone). In July 2010 he moved to another side in division two, Albacete Balompié; in February of the following year, with the Castile-La Mancha club ranking in 19th position out of 22, eventually suffering relegation, he was fired.
In July 2011 Calderón signed for CD Tenerife, in the third level. On 22 January of the following year, following a 2–3 home defeat to Sporting de Gijón B, he was relieved of his duties, as the Canary Islands side eventually could not promote.
For 2012–13 , in August, just one week before the start of the season, Calderón returned to Huesca, with the team still in the second tier. He was sacked after a 4–0 loss at UD Las Palmas in December, but the club eventually dropped down to the third tier after a five-year stay.
For 2013–14 Calderón took over Cadiz CF, with 8 games to go and the team struggling to reach the playoffs in second division B. He managed to win 6 games and draw 2 and Cadiz finally qualified for the playoffs. He got a new contract for the following season, 2014-2015, but was sacked after 14 games despite the team being second.
