​Ole Gunnar Solskjær Sacking: ​Manchester United ​Treat the Symptom ​without ​Addressing the Disease

Playthings Episode 7: The sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer by Manchester United | Rahul Dravid's flying start as the Indian cricket team coach | Murder of wrestler Nisha Dahiya and her brother by her coach.

​Ole Gunnar Solskjær was sacked by Manchester United on November 21, following a 1-4 rout at Watford the previous day. ​Playthings co-hosts Siddhanth Aney and Leslie Xavier look at whether the sacking, which was a while in the making, ​is a case of using a bandaid ​while the wound remains gaping​. ​In other stories, Rahul Dravid's stint as Indian cricket team ​coach is off to a flying start with a 3-0 whitewash of New Zealand in the T20I series. The upcoming Test series against the Kiwis should set the tone for what might be a golden period under the cerebral and methodical coach​. ​21-year-old wrestler Nisha Dahiya and her brother's murder by their coach Pawan Barak has put in focus, once again, the violence and hyper-masculinity that has long plagued Indian wrestling.
