Born in Bluefields, he made his debut for Deportivo Bluefields and played for América before enjoying a lengthy spell with Nicaraguan giants Real Estelí. He was Estelí´s top goalsorer in the 2005 Clausura and Apertura with 11 and 16 goals respectively but after scoring only 7 in the 2007 Apertura he was relegated to the bench only for Bluefield to try to lure him back to the club.
In September 2010, Calero was charged with assault of a young man, the son of a prominent Nicaraguan businessman. Calero claimed the boy sweared at him. He already faced prosecution for damage to property, after damaging a vehicle. The ill-disciplined Calero was again arrested in July 2012 after assaulting a citizen and allegedly threatening him with death.
