With relations between Greece and its European neighbors at an all-time low, and the country's politicians appearing increasingly defiant in the face of criticism, analysts are questioning whether Greece actually wants to get kicked out of the single currency.
Encounters between Greece and the euro zone have become increasingly acrimonious over the last few weeks, as Greece's commitment to its bailout program and reforms has been questioned. Greece was granted a four-month extension to its aid program in February, but there are concerns over the pace of reforms implemented by the government.
Richard Lewis, fund manager at Fidelity Worldwide Investment, told CNBC he believed that Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras wanted a Greek exit from the euro zone.
"My personal view is that the Greek politicians are angling to get kicked out of the euro" he told CNBC Europe's "Squawk Box" on Thursday, adding that it would be "entirely rational" for the country to want a so-called "Grexit" given its economic situation.
