AFL – Fremantle Dockers All Australian defender Michael Johnson (pictured) believes David Mundy is the perfect replacement for former skipper Matthew Pavlich.

While Pavlich will remain part of the Dockers leadership group, the club hopes relinquishing the captaincy will allow Pavlich the opportunity to enjoy the twilight years of his career without the pressure of leading the club.

Johnson says while it will be different not being lead by the veteran Pavlich after so many years, in Mundy the club has just the type of leader it needs.
