He began his career in his native Ljubljana playing for Slovan and later transferring to Interblock youth selections, where he remained until 2011, when he was acquired by top Slovenian club, Maribor. Stojanović, who is right footed, primarily plays in midfield and is praised for his technique and playmaking skills. After his transfer to Maribor Joc Pečečnik, owner of Interblock, accused Zlatko Zahovič, director of football at the Styrian club, of going behind his back and stealing from them one of the biggest Slovenian talents of his age. During his first year in Maribor he mostly played for the U17 team. However, due to the league dominance of the club which plays their matches at the Ljudski vrt stadium, he got his chance to play for the main squad in the second part of the 2011–12 season and made his first appearance in the Slovenian top division, 1. SNL, on 25 March 2012. At the time of his debut, he was 16 years, five months and 18 days of age and set a new club record as the youngest player to appear in the top division. He surpassed the previous record, held by Luka Krajnc and set one season earlier, by exactly two months and 23 days.
