Malthouse defended by ex-Pie after Robinson call


//

Former Collingwood premiership player Alan Didak has come to the defence of his Magpies coach Mick Malthouse after recent criticism.

Malthouse last week told ABC Grandstand that he would like to be coaching again at the AFL level, but the suggestion has been laughed off by several of his former Carlton players, including now-Lions star Mitch Robinson.

Robinson questioned Malthouse's communication skills and blamed the veteran coach for him falling out of love with football during his time with the Blues.

However, according to Didak, Malthouse did a favour to Robinson by letting him go at the end of 2014.

“Players from 1-18, they used to love Malthouse, and from 18-25, they’d like him, and after that players hated him because they weren’t getting a game,” Didak told SEN.

“I believe that Mitch, at Carlton, was one of those players (outside the 25), and I think Mick did him a favour in the end.

“He’s gone off to Brisbane and become a very, very good player, they love him up there.

“He’s doing a really, really good role for that team, but I think if Mitch was playing every single week (at Carlton), he’d absolutely love him (Malthouse).”

Speaking on his own podcast, Robinson was candid about his time under Malthouse, saying that he often stayed in his car because he did not feel like going to work.

"He made it very tough for me to enjoy the game and to enjoy the environment that I was in at the Carlton footy club, which evidently, I guess, led to my delisting at one stage," Robinson said.

"Coming into work was always very tough. I’ve written in my diary many times that … I didn’t want to get out of the car and go into work because it was just a hard place to go to.

"He had ties into that and for some reasons that was probably why I didn’t perform at my best."
