After being an instrumental unit in helping Atlético promote from Segunda División in the 2001-02 season,[4] Stankovi? retired at the end of 2004-05 at the age of 34, following a spell with Catalonia's UE Lleida also in that tier.[5] He later worked as an assistant manager to former Mallorca teammate Paco Soler, first in S.C. Beira-Mar (Portugal)[6] then lowly CD Atlético Baleares.[7]

As a head coach, Stankovi? was in charge of several teams in his country.[8]
