Barcelona stabilised a style and way of playing unlike Real Madrid, says Ramon Calderon.

Too many coaching changes at the Bernabeu has cost Real Madrid, according to the club's former president Ramon Calderon.

Calderon believes arch rivals Barcelona have a stronger football philosophy than Los Blancos.

The La Liga and European champions have maintained a football philosophy since Johan Cruyff was boss at the Camp Nou and it has helped the Catalan club lift a lot of trophies over the years, something the 64-year-old is envious about.

However, Calderon is hoping Madrid divert from their current ways of changing football managers on a regular without planning, adding Barca have been the better side for a while.

"We [in Madrid] go from one coach to another without any criteria, without planning anything. We have to recognise Barcelona have done better than us all those years," he told Omnisport.

"Barcelona, since Cruyff's era in the [19]80s, stabilised a style and way of playing and everybody understood that. All of them have respected it with both good and bad years but at the end they have had a plan and idea.

"Here, at Real Madrid, that doesn't happen because the president [Florentino Perez] is an engineer and if we don't change that we will see more 4-0 defeats against Barcelona.

"Ten coaches have been at Real Madrid in the last 10 years with this president. It’s something impossible to find in any other big club."
