The 34-year-old left the Seagulls this year after six years of service and is now plying his trade at Cypriot club Anorthosis Famagusta FC.
Calderon’s illustrious Brighton career included a promotion in his first season as well as 18 league goals in nearly 200 league appearances at right-back.

It’s therefore no surprise that the Spaniard thinks so fondly of his time on the south coast and one day wishes to return.
“I’m not sure when, and I’m not sure what role it will be, but one day I will come ‘home’. The club is a part of me, the fans are a part of me and the city is part of me.
“I’m still in contact with the club and I must admit that when I see pictures of the players or the training ground, I do miss it. It’s good to see the team pushing for promotion again and hopefully we can go one better than last season.

“Although I miss Brighton, I am enjoying this new experience. It was a challenge that I needed at this stage of my career.”
Having been let go on a free transfer in the summer, as well as his age, it seems unlikely that Calderon will return to the Seagulls in a playing capacity. However, the veteran defender does appear to have everything required to become a key member of the coaching staff, having earned a masters degree in sports psychology as well as being a qualified teacher.
