He has also been an Albania international player from 1982 to 1987, making 16 appearances and scoring 2 goals.[1]

Legacy[edit]

He will be remembered by football fans as one of the finest Albanian footballers of the 1980s, skillful with the ball, but also distinguished as an extraordinary assist man, and a strong shooter. Muça's skills have been shown many times on the pitch: he could play in the center or the right side of the midfield.

Managerial career[edit]

Muça has had one of the most successful coaching careers in the post '90 footballistic Albania, first as Tirana and Dinamo then as Flamurtari Vlorë coach.

He obtained the FIFA coaching license in May 2008.
