Coming off the best season of his career after signing a contract extension last summer Luis Suarez should be elated and overjoyed. 

It was a season that saw him captivate the Anfield faithful with tantalising performances, which in turn catapulted the Uruguayan into contention for the PFA Player of the Year award.

Despite all these genuinely hard fought accomplishments it would be controversy that would cause the affliction that ultimately scourged a profusely productive season. 

It was on 21st April 2013 in a clash against London side Chelsea that saw the impetuous forward retort and his erratic behaviour reached its climax as Suarez appallingly proceeded to bite Branislav Ivanovic. 

The media viciously berated and excoriated Suarez's unacceptable reaction and Liverpool were urged to abandon him before further damage was done to the clubs name. 

This intense pressure was adding to the frustration and trouble Liverpool where having when routinely being forced to defend the petulant striker.

The loyalty that Liverpool has shown in him regardless of his actions were disregarded and callously forgotten when he expressed his desire to leave Merseyside citing the intense negative media attention he received as the main reason. 

Luis Suarez's recent actions indicate the relationship with the board is strained but more worryingly he has severely severed the trust the Kop fans had in him. 

How will Suarez be remembered - as a victim of the media, an Anfield legend or as the antagonist in a hurtful story of betrayal? 

The romance in red is one that unfortunately ended in a way that nobody ever envisioned or wanted.
