BURTON Albion’s new arrival Ivan Calero spoke to our press for the first time since arriving at the Pirelli

Calero joins the Brewers on a youth loan from the Championship side for an initial month.

The five-foot nine attacking player has feature three times for the Rams this season scoring the winner in the Capital One Cup against Charlton Athletic earlier on the in the season.

The youngster just wants to keep his feet on the ground, win games and get promoted.

“I think the first point of joining is to help the team and keep going…to get promoted and try my best for the team.” Said Calero “I think the move is good for my development. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was a really great player and I think I can learn so many things from him.”

Tom Naylor joined the Brewers late last week on loan from Derby County, where Ivan is on loan from. They have played together in the Derby U21s and trained with each other yesterday. Calero believes that having a familiar face around the club will help him settle in.

“I know him (Tom Naylor), I train with him at Derby so obviously it helps. He is a good lad so I think he will definitely help me.”

The Brewers sit second in the Sky Bet League 2 on goal difference. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has lost just one game since arriving back in November and Calero just wants to carry on the success.
