CARLTON coach Mick Malthouse has revealed his family were 'bitter' and 'disappointed with humanity' following his departure from Collingwood as the build up to Sunday's blockbuster at the MCG intensifies.

As he prepares to face his former club for the first time, Malthouse has made public his family's distaste of the coaching handover to Nathan Buckley following the 2011 grand final defeat.

"They (my family) thought it (coaching) was finished at the end of Collingwood," he said in the third and final instalment of his Malthouse: No Limits documentary.

"They were very disappointed, bitter in many respects, with the way it finished (at Collingwood).

"And really done with football and disappointed with humanity, if you like.

"I like to build things on friendship, and they go along with that friendship – when it's broken, it's broken and badly broken."

His wife, Nanette, also revealed she could not wait for Sunday's blockbuster at the MCG to be over.

"I'm just dreading it," she said in the documentary.

"I'll just be glad for it to be over because it's all everybody talks about.

"I'd like to go and hide away somewhere."

The three-time premiership coach admitted he was expecting to cop some comments from over the fence on Sunday.

"I'm sure the media will make more out of it than what it should be...(but) if I draw the attention and it helps my team, so be it," he said.

"I am not silly enough to suspect that when we walk onto the ground at the MCG in Round 2 that there is not going to be some banter between the supporters and them to me."

Malthouse said most Collingwood supporters he had come across still held him in high regard.

"I haven't met one Collingwood supporter that has been negative," Malthouse said.

"It surprised me because I don't think a lot of them know the full story.

"None the less, those that I do have contact with just acknowledge the fact I spent 12 good years at the Collingwood Football Club.

"Most wish me all the best, albeit with a follow up like, 'Why Carlton?'

The comments emerged the day after Malthouse made it clear he had no plans to reconcile with Magpies president Eddie McGuire.

"I have many things to do, but I don't think that is going to happen," Malthouse said on Fox Footy's On the Couch last night.

"And Eddie knows exactly the reasons why.

"I don't need to go there...there's a million things that happen on this planet and that are going to happen in football.

"I'm just focusing on this year."

McGuire has said he hoped to one day repair his relationship with Malthouse.
