As the incredible actions of Luis Suarez mistaking Giorgio Chiellini as a delicious Italian dinner are still fresh in everybody's mind, the big question still remains. What possessed the Uruguayan to do it?
In the wake of FIFA sending a very strong statement by banning Suarez for four months from any football related activity - which many have labelled as 'excessive' - there has a huge call for Liverpool to get rid of their star man and for Suarez himself to seek professional help.
Is Suarez plotting a deceptive ploy?
This may be the best way to go for Liverpool's star player but is there an extraordinary underlying message to Suarez's crazy antics?
As the world watched on Suarez do the unthinkable and bite a player for the third time in four years last Tuesday night, several questions were asked of his mental state of mind to try and discover why he would jeopardise his flourishing career.
There is not much arguing that the 27-year-old is irrational and out of touch with reality but are his antics a desperate attempt to leave Liverpool chiefs with no choice but to sell him so he can finally escape Anfield?
2010 witnessed the first chapter of the Suarez saga as he shockingly bit PSV Eindhoven midfielder Otman Bakkal while playing for Ajax at the time, where by he received a fine and a somewhat lenient ban of two games.
However, at the time there was heavy speculation that he was unhappy at the Dutch club and wanted to leave for greener pastures. The conclusion was that after Liverpool expressed their interest, Ajax sold their best player and for a cut price.
Two seasons ago sparked a similar turn of events. The English press had a field day as Chelsea's Branislav Ivanović fell second victim to Suarez's ambiguous physical assaults.
At the time it was clear that Liverpool's star striker wanted Champions League football, which was something that the Anfield club were not going to achieve that season. This could well of been an extravagant attempt to try and force through a sale to a club who had more chance of success - an attempt which failed.
What next for the Uruguayan?
As it stands, a move to Spanish giants Barcelona seems to be the best for both Liverpool and Suarez, but is this exactly what the Uruguayan wanted?
Despite an extremely successful campaign for Suarez last season which helped Brendan Rodgers' side to a second place finish, the transfer rumours still circulated.
With the Uruguay and Italy game in the balance as to who would progress, Suarez may well of decided that it could be his last opportunity to give Liverpool no option but to let him go. This being said, why would he want to leave?
The reasons predominantly lie with the English media. Suarez has always stated that the press are out to get him, with him publicly expressing his joy in knocking England out of the World Cup. This may be so, but for good reason.
Last summer Suarez showed his club little respect but trying to force through move away despite Liverpool supporting him through his criticism.
As well as this, there has been no holding back in blaming the English media who he believes purposely trying to destroy his image. This is the same English media that voted Suarez player of the year last season. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.
The best thing for Liverpool to do right now is to let Suarez get his own way and move on, as if they don't their reputation will be in tatters. Top clubs all state that no one player is bigger than the club, and that be all the information Liverpool need to make their decision.
