I don't now why you act like this.[8] An angry Cungu responded: "As long as im coach here, you shall get no playing time", which led the parties to a brawl.[8] They were separated by the assistant manager Aleksandër Maxhar, and then Hoxha left the training ground.[8] On 16 December, Hoxha officially left the club after terminating his contract by mutual consent.[9] The club also confirmed his departure via a stetament.[10] Hoxha stated that he left the club due to "Cungu injustice".[11]
