AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan has criticised Lachie Henderson’s decision to tell Carlton he wants out of the club with three rounds still to play.

Henderson told the club on Thursday that he wanted to be traded at the end of the season. The club then told Henderson to pack his bags and leave the club immediately.

Henderson, having now played his last game with Carlton, was criticised by the AFL CEO on radio this morning.

“I really don’t like him saying he wants to go somewhere else with three rounds to go,” McLachlan told 3AW.

“It’s unnecessary, it’s undisciplined and I’ve got no idea why people feel the need to do it.”

Henderson is believed to be interested in joining Geelong.
