Managerial careerEdit

LaçiEdit

Cungu started his second season in charge of Laçi in July, where the team was going to face Inter Baku for the 2015–16 UEFA Europa League first qualifying round.[3] In the first leg at home, despite making a good overall appearance in the match, Laçi didn't earn more than a 1–1 draw, leaving everything open for the returning leg.[4] In the returning leg, Cungu's side was not able to score as the final result was 0–0, meaning that Laçi are out due to away goal rule.[5] On 12 August, in team's first match in domestic season, Cungu won his second silverware with the club, the Albanian Supercup, where Laçi beat Skënderbeu Korçë on penalty shootouts after a 2–2 draw in regular time.[6]

On 31 December 2015, Cungu resigned as Laçi coach following the poor results lately.[7]

Vllaznia ShkodërEdit

On 8 January 2016, Cungu was appointed the new coach of Vllaznia Shkodër, replacing Armir Grimaj for the second part of 2015–16 season.[8] He was presented to the media the following day, where he signed is 18-month contract.[9]
