After military service, he will return to Vlora, to continue his career for 15 seasons with Flamurtari, but he has also recorded 11 matches with the red and black youth national team in men's volleyball, as well as 5 matches with the adult national team. In 1982 he received the title "Master of Sports", and after the end of his active career as an athlete, he continued to work as a coach of ages in Vlora, but also for 3 years, from 2016 to 2019, as an adult coach of Flamurtari.

The Albanian Volleyball Federation expresses its sincere condolences to the family of Ylli Lulushi, but also to the great family of our sport for the loss of another former player who has left a mark!
