AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan says the league will help Carlton as much as necessary to find a suitable and successful replacement for Mick Malthouse.

McLachlan said he believed the board would turn the fortunes of the struggling club around, however, also stressed that the AFL would work with Carlton and provide as much support as needed.

“(President) Mark LoGiudice has come in with a very singular purpose and he’s been clear about the deficiencies of the past and the way Carlton may have gone about certain things,” McLachlan told 3AW.

“He’s been very clear about the process and the systems he’s trying to bring in there.

“They’ve made some decisions on people and their coach is going to be another one where they’re going to bring in their person.

“We’re working as closely as they want us to work with them and I’ve got great confidence they’ll get there.”
