Citing the club's Christmas party as an example, Calderon explained: "The night when we celebrated Christmas at the Bernabeu with the players, coaches and employees was incredible.
"Some years ago, in the era of the Galacticos, it was almost a funeral.
"I was there as a director and nobody was happy. Two months before resigning, Florentino (Perez) was limited to offer: 'Merry Christmas to all'. The tables were in silence and it was not a family, but a group of professionals where each one left on his own.
"We have returned to be a family and the results are proof this is the way to go."
